Hi, I've been having an issue for a while whereby it seems that whenever I try to log into the app on any of my devices, I'm told that I've reached my device limit and need to unlink a device. When I look at the list of linked devices, the device I'm trying to log in with is already listed as a linked device. It's happened a few times on Android, iOS and Windows.
Any help anyone can offer will be greatly apreciated. Thanks in advance
Hi, I mean that I already have the app installed on my devices and have already linked the devices previously and accessed the app on those devices, but on numerous occasions when I next go to access my files using the app I'm told that I need to first unlink a device. When I'm shown my list of linked devices, the device I'm trying to use is already listed as one of my linked devices.

If you "need to first unlink a device", that mean you don't have active logical link to you account (for whatever reason)! If you connected device's links count isn't falling in your plan limitation (if any), then you have to unlink some device(s), so you have least 1 available "place". For Basic plan, device's links count limitation is 3 links, all together (including possible inactive links, not explicitly removed).
When some your device (seems without active link - as in your case) is already listed as one of your devices, that means the established link got break, but still not removed! That's why I told you to mark the second Android device (with broken, but still existing link), to unlink it (i.e. completely remove the broken link) and link anew.
