URL of a file changed in dropbox

URL of a file changed in dropbox

I'm a basic user and the URL to a QR code I've used on a business card (to link to a file in Dropbox) has changed when I've overwritten the file with one of the same name. I've used the same browser version to do this and can't understand why this has changed. Can anyone help? TIA

Hi @jeseric88, let's jump right into this! 

 

First of all, can you let me know which third-party app or website you used on your end to create the QR code? 

 

Now, as for the file -and make sure to correct me if I'm wrong here- as I understand it, you had uploaded a file let's say named cat, in your Dropbox account. And then you uploaded a second file with the same name, which caused the URL to change, right? 

 

If you do the same thing on a different file, do you notice the same behavior?

 

Keep me posted!
