The Dropbox API doesn't offer a call to append data to an existing file, but I'll be sure to pass this along as a feature request.

You'll need to upload the full contents of the new version of the file instead.

hi there,

I am new to dropbox and looking at the options offered for file sharing, i wonder why there is not an append to file one. Why ? when people from a group modify a document (write) some information may be deleted. When appending to the document, the owner can see what was added or requested to delete, and then the owner can aggregate all the comments to finalise the doc.
