What's the response body? It should contain a more useful error.

Only : 'bad data'
Can you give me example for a working request of this type?

Are you sure that's the actual/entire response body? That doesn't look like an error from the Dropbox API.

Anyway, the documentation includes a curl example:

Yes, thats all.
Sorry i mistakes the error code is 400 which means bad argument value.
