Re: socket.timeout issue even with session upload

socket.timeout issue even with session upload

Hello I have quite a large amount of files on my machine and I have given up using the dropbox app as it just will not sync.

I am using the dropbox python sdk but I am having socket.timeout issues.

I am using upload_session for the large files but this affects both large (files_upload_session) and small (files_upload).

I have tried the following:

  1. change the chunk sizes in the session upload from 8mb to 90mb. I am still getting upload_session.
  2. I tried adding time.sleep() to delay api calls but I am still getting the same problem.

 

Here is the gist on github.

I have 200mbps up and down on a business line.

 

Can someone please shed some light as to how I can fix this?
