Regarding Download API - 461 Status

Explorer | Level 4

Hi,

 

I have developed an app using Dropbox jar (v1.. While downloading files using the client jar, I get the following response.

unexpected HTTP status code: 461: {"error": "This file is no longer available due to a takedown request under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act by steven a hardinger."}

This is happening only for the "Getting Started.pdf" file in Dropbox.. However, I can directly download the file from Dropbox. Can you please throw some light on this? All help is appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Naga Abhinaya T

Thanks for the report! This should be fixed now.

 

By the way, based on the version number of the SDK you mentioned (1. it sounds like you're using the Java Core SDK, which uses API v1. API v1 is deprecated, so you should migrate to the API v2 Java SDK.
