High Quality Downloading Dropbox

Dropbox Professional, Standard, Advanced, and Enterprise customers can add a password to a shared link on or on the Dropbox mobile app. When someone opens the link, they'll need the password to see its contents.

Dropbox Professional, Standard, Advanced, and Enterprise customers can create, modify, or remove an expiration date for a shared link on or on the Dropbox mobile app. People will only be able to access the shared link until the expiration date. After its expiration date, that link is disabled.

We keep running into a very annoying problem. I have to be selective about syncing, because I'm literally downloading TB of data and have to make room. Dropbox pretty regularly will start downloading the files when I change a folder from cloud to 'local', and then slow down to a crawl. I'll see it drop randomly down to KB/s and then finally nothing where it just says 'downloading X files' but makes no progress (even after waiting a while). I've tried re-installing multiple times, resetting permission, cache, all the stuff the FAQ and base level support tells you to do to no avail.

The only thing I've found that SOMETIMES works, is enabling a VPN. For some reason toggling a VPN will sometimes kick it into gear. But sometimes that doesn't work either. I've checked with my ISP because of the heavy use to make sure they aren't throttling the dropbox connection, and they said they are not.

However, I don't believe it's a matter of the files just needing time to sync. It will literally sit for hours doing nothing other than say 'downloading' when this happens. When I switch a VPN or something on, often it will start moving again pretty much immediately. But I've had more than one occasion where I left everything running and came in the next morning, only to be incredibly frustrated that nothing else was downloaded... despite the apparent busy-ness of the app.

Note: The original shared link URL may contain query string parameters already (for example, dl=0). App developers should be sure to properly parse the URL and add or modify parameters as needed. The links may also redirect to *

You can access your Dropbox account, and your Dropbox files, with the Dropbox mobile app for your phone or tablet (including Android, iPhone, and iPad). Alternatively, you can sign into on your mobile device in any mobile browser app.

When you add or change files in the Dropbox desktop app, your changes are reflected everywhere you access your files in Dropbox. Your upload rate affects how fast this happens. When you add or change files on or anywhere else you access your files in Dropbox, those changes are reflected in the Dropbox desktop app. Your download rate affects how fast this happens.

We begin with downloading your files to a computer from Dropbox because it is about the most common need. There are several reasons why people need to download Dropbox files to their computers. For example& we are in an era where remote work has become the order of the day. Sometimes& individuals need to download certain files from Dropbox to make their work easier.

Have you ever encountered the problem of failing to Dropbox files from Dropbox? As a well-known cloud storage service, Dropbox has superior synchronization and sharing features, but it also has some problems with file downloading and file loading. Generally, the main reasons for file download failures are as follows.

The best way to prevent your Dropbox data from being lost is to backup it to other clouds for double protection. CBackup is a professional cloud backup service, which entitles you to backup Dropbox files to OneDrive, Google Drive, and other cloud storage services. It supports transferring games, videos, pictures, documents, and other files from one cloud to another without downloading and uploading.

I'm storing two files in a folder on Dropbox and I want to download the folder as a zipped file using requests, just as I would if I were downloading it from Dropbox's GUI. I've created a Share Link and am trying to reach it with requests:

No, not at this time. In order to move documents from your existing Clio documents into Clio/Dropbox, you would have to download each individually to your computer and re-upload them into the dropbox tab in Clio.

Today's post comes from a Dropbox user: "I've been using Dropbox for a long time and only lately noticed that it takes forEVER to upload files to Dropbox (it seems fine when downloading). Is there something I can do to speed this up??"

It turns out that Dropbox have hidden away some arbitrary limitations (for reasons kept to themselves). While they have increased from the original 1GB/file it's still impossible to have files larger than 50GB with Even worse you can't download any folder with a total size >20GB in one go (or any folder containing more than 10,000 files). This limit is because they zip the files before users download in bulk, it's not a restriction aimed at preventing users from downloading the files.

I have searched multiple threads on and here as well as across the wider internet and have not found any way to automate downloading the contents of shared folders that are greater than 20GB in total size. Dropbox are happy for the files to be downloaded, they just have not been able to provide a tool to make it quicker for users.

Is there really no workaround or solution to make this quicker than manually downloading each file individually? Dropbox are very happy to allow you to save the files but neither they or their users have provided a computer software solution that I have found yet. Is anyone aware of one or the best way to create one myself?

Before launching dropboxAUR for the first time, it is mandatory to have python-gpgme installed. Otherwise, the program is unable to sign the binaries and verify the signatures, when it is started the next time. For some reason, dropboxAUR has not marked this package as a required dependency but it is still such.

Since at least version 2.4.6 (see comments around 2013-11-06 on AUR), Dropbox has had an auto-update capability which downloads a new binary to the /.dropbox-dist/ folder. The service then attempts to hand over control to this binary and dies, causing systemd to re-start the service, generating a conflict and an endless loop of log-filling, CPU-eating misery.

For KDE users, no further steps are required, as KDE saves running applications when logging out and restarts them automatically. Similarly for Xfce users, Dropbox will be restarted automatically next time you login since the dropbox.desktop file has been placed in /.config/autostart.

To have Dropbox automatically start when your system boots, simply enable the systemd service, passing your username as the instance identifier. The service unit to be enabled takes the format dropbox@username.

Pay attention to use different .../.dropbox-dist/dropboxd binaries. Even when setting a custom HOME value, the /opt/dropbox/dropbox or /opt/dropbox/dropboxd wrappers allow only one instance and when started they will kill the one already running.

Several file managers such as Thunar, GNOME Files or its fork Nemo come with extensions that provide context menu entries for files and folders inside your Dropbox. Most of them will result in a browser action such as opening the file or folder in or sharing the link. If you experience these entries not working, then it is likely you have not set the $BROWSER variable which Dropbox requires. See Environment variables for details.

In the 'Name' field add 'Dropbox', and in the 'Command' field click on 'Browse...', then head to your home directory, give Ctrl+H to reveal hidden files, click on dropbox-dist and then select the file dropboxd. In the 'Comment' field, add whatever you want.

It will ask you for your account info as usual, I think, or it will say that dropbox isn't installed (and it will say to run dropbox -i start). Do whatever necessary (sorry :( i don't remember what I did) so as to fill your account info and such and to login into your dropbox account!

... as indicated in the instructions. I was not paying attention and thought the warning applied only to the original package downloaded from the dropbox web site, and had to redo the whole thing (the instructions provided above are for 64 bit).

I successfully downloaded dropbox, but when I enter the Ebooks folder and click on the book, I get the error message: Please download app that can open this file. The file is a .mobi file. Please help

I spent about an hour tonight troubleshooting an issue with AT&T technician David who works via phone from Wisconsin. Here's what we finally deduced: Attempting to download a large (2GB) file via a web browser from results in my broadband WAN internet connection being throttled down to less than 1Mbps (with an effective download rate of

How did we deduce this? David created a new network SSID on my router and had me only connect one device to it (so that no other devices would interfere with the test). The speeds were fine, in-line with the plan I have. I could visit sites, watch videos, run, etc. with no issues. Then, I would attempt to download a large file from Within a minute of initiating the download, my overall broadband WAN connection speed would throttle down to

You might say, "Well, the dropbox app and other filesharing apps use up a lot of bandwidth." But I wasn't using the dropbox app. I was using a web browser to download a single file. No filesharing apps are even installed on the one machine that was connected to the network.

This is not a problem with your AT&T service. There is a lot of this being reported on the dropbox forum, it sounds as if its a software problem maxing out resources. Here is just an example post -us/community/posts/202217475-Slow-download-and-upload-speed-from-dropbox

@routerdown You can't accurately place blame until the issue is corrected. I gave information based on what i was able to comprehend from your initial post. As I also stated, you may be suffering from the modem setting of flood detection, because when you do a direct download, the browser will try to open up several channels, when this happens the modem thinks its a flood attack and will reset the connection (sometimes causing the light to turn red). If it's not flood detection, then we would almost need to send a technician for this issue to see if a tech can reproduce this with their laptop, and if they can then we can test from there to see if there is a router between us and dropbox that is causing latency because we do not throttle dropbox connections or any connections as long as they have not exceeded their data limit.
