Hi,

I was trying to share some Dropbox image links, but the links cannot be seen after a while and shows Error 410.

Please advise what is Error 410 and how to solve this.

Thank you!

Welcome aboard the Community, @Sartaj!

 

Can you send over a screenshot of the error message you keep receiving? 

 

If you create another shared link for a different file, do you experience the same behavior?

 

Let me know when you’ve got more info.

Hi Nancy,

Thanks for replying. I tried with numerous files, and it happens with all the files. The image link generated by dropbox works for sometime but then starts throwing a 410.

I am selecting "Copy image link' by right clicking on the dropbox .jpg image in Microsoft Edge.

For example, i am copying image link by right clicking on [Removed as per Community Guidelines]

and it gives me following link which will no longer be valid after few hours and will throw the Error 410 msg.

Hi @Sartaj, this isn't how you create a direct link to an image in Dropbox. To do so, you'd change the end of your shared link from dl=0 to raw=1 for the image to be displayed in the browser.

 

If you create a link using your method, then this could result in the link being changed since it's possible the direct image URL changes.

I am using Dropbox with Django as file storage, and one of the image was removed with error 410, I received neither warning nor any explanation for so.

Hi @Drxuser, could you clarify how you're creating the file storage? Are you using the image links the same way as this user?

As you have mentioned earlier created link via share and replaced dl=0 with raw=1, should I share the copied link are the link that get generated when you visit the shared link.

Shared one look like:
https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/<long chain of text>raw=1

after visiting site, link change to something like

https://uc7ebcfd4417d1778868babed360.dl.dropboxusercontent.com/cd/0/get/<long chain of text>/file
