I would assume this isn't done to discourage large uploads. I second the request, I'm uploading a 130GB file on 30Mbs only and I want to know if I should pause it for the day when I work or if it will be hogging my troughput only for 1-2 hours more.
I also often upload 2-4GB images to publishers and on deadlines it's annoying for them not to know exactly how long my upload will take. Even a few minutes is valuable time at the deadline.
@NadiaK It sounds like you're referring to using the official Dropbox application. This thread was about a specific feature of the Dropbox developer platform, not the Dropbox app.
You can share feedback about the Dropbox app itself in the "Share an idea" forum here:
