Why do I only get the file that is called "Unspecified"?

Can't download my files - The only file that downloads is called "Unspecified" and is around 45 bytes and hasn't any proper description

What do I do?

Just did a Google search, no info, except for this post. I'm guessing it's a problem just from today. Dropbox, do your thing...

Download smaller groups of photos. I was able to successfully download at least 100 photos, but it took a couple of minutes.

I have been messing around with this for a while today, If you try to download more than one folder at once, this happens. If you download each individual folder separately (not individual files, but folders), the issue does not occur. At least, that's what worked for me.
