A path/conflict/file error indicates that the upload failed because a file already exists at the path specified.

You'd need to remove/rename the existing file, use a different file name for the upload, or use a different write mode to get that call to succeed. You can find more information in the documentation:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/documentation#files-upload

(There is also corresponding documentation for the native methods in the documentation for the official SDKs, if you're using one.)

@evry1falls When uploading via upload sessions with the .NET SDK, you can set the write mode via the CommitInfo object(s) you supply to the UploadSessionFinishAsync or UploadSessionFinishBatchAsync methods.

I changed the chunksize to 512 kb, I will give it a shot now and I will get back to you.
