Dropbox API Support & Feedback
Find help with the Dropbox API from other developers.
This is really starting to be a pain.
I can't seem to get the correct directory of my file. I'm trying to download a file from my DB using the files_download_to_file() function.
I'm trying to run
I simply get back: DownloadError('path', LookupError('not_found', None)))
What is the actual issue here? I've tried using files_list_folder("") and files_list_folder("/Stock_List") too, to no avail.
When i use files_list_folder("") I get nothing, but when i print(files_list_folder(")) i get a load of garbage jargon.
Surely there is something simple im missing here and it isn't this finnicky to just simply download a file on to my local drive...
This is the Python SDK, correct?
calling print(dbx.files_list_folder("")) will show the full ListFolderResult object.
To iterate over the results and print just the path, you'll want something like this:
res = dbx.files_list_folder("") for entry in res.entries: print(entry.path_lower)
That will return valid paths that you can use with the files_download_to_file call.
