Thanks for using Dropbox, and sorry for posting the release notes so late!  Here are the user-visible changes in v69:
 
v69 release notes:
  • Limit the frequency of the notification to prompt “sync first”
  • Removed sync time estimates, but they're being added back in v73 thanks to user feedback slightly smiling face
  • Minor stability improvements and bug fixes

Hi @ngoclb ! Yes, it should definitely support linking both accounts. If something isn't working correctly, please let us know.

As of this build, my app no longer says how long it will take for the file upload to be completed. Was this feature removed from the latest version? It's very helpful for large bulk uploads and has proven to be quite accurate.

Great question @Grant H.5 ! We decided to drop the time estimates for the time being because of concerns around accuracy. BUT there are still ways to tell how much your progress your files have made syncing! You should be able to see a progress bar above the status that visually shows you how far your files are from being done.

Thank you for the feedback, and we'll definitely take into consideration as we decide on our next steps. slightly smiling face

Man, I love me some Dropbox, but that is a huge dissappointment. I'm no longer able to leave batches of assets uploading, send people notes with estimates (plus half an hour or so), and simply walk away. That is a huge convenience for the people I send files to as well. 

Were those concerns "internal" or were there actually concerns by users? It seems like the response of the removal would cause more complaints.

Where is this progress bar you speak of? Here is what I see in addition to the note on mouseover. I don't see a bar.

Does your system give the option to revert to a previous version of the software?

Hi @Grant H.5,

Thank you for your great feedback.

I'm excited to give you an update on time estimates in the progress bar! We were testing whether replacing the time estimates with the light blue progress bar would sufficiently solve the need for knowing the status of files. Based on your feedback (and many others), we've concluded that that's not the case. We'll be bringing time estimates shortly (likely the next build)! I'll update this thread when we confirm that.

@Grant H.5 Great to hear that you're excited! The time estimates should return in the next beta version (v73). Let us know if you have any additional questions or concerns!

What are stable and beta builds?

The stable builds are for the Desktop client, which is regularly updated with many improvements and fixes.

A beta build is an early release feature that is subject to these additional terms.
