Dropbox is spending my time.

Today I opened my email and there is a message:

"Hi X, This is a friendly reminder that your Dropbox is almost full! Sadly, it..."
I thought something is wrong and start, cant remember how long I was not been there and there is a big splash screen "Focus on the work that matters". Then I was unable to open my account unknown why and had to change my password which I remember very well and is strong enough with a simple one with the hope that I will be able to put the old one again. Nope. It can not be done, the old password is inacceptable.

And my account is as it was - using 2.09 from 2.5.

I lost my focus...

Sorry to hear you had an unpleasant experience @antonarset

Thanks for reporting this to our Community. 

Please note we are unable to see account information here for privacy reasons, thus I cannot really help with the password issue or explain how it was reset. 

I want to kindly ask you to contact our support here, if you need help with this. 

Once more, thank you for your feedback.
