The list_folder API does not support getting mediaInfo resulting in a large amount of IO. Will greatly affect the performance of my app.I can accept that List_folder will be a bit slower, but a lot of network IO is unacceptable.
Thanks for the post! It sounds like you're referring to the recent deprecation of the 'include_media_info' parameter on /2/files/list_folder. Unfortunately this is necessary in order to support some changes on the Dropbox backend, but I'll send your feedback along to the team.
Any news on this? We experience greate performance deterioration in our service which relies on list_folders, as we now should request media_info separately for each file in folder. Having batch version of get_metadata would be helpful.
@viskin No, I don't have any news to report here. The deprecated 'include_media_info' functionality on /2/files/list_folder is still planned for retirement shortly, and we don't have a batch version of /2/files/get_metadata available.
