Hey Vicon,

We recently performed a batch-archive of old threads that were either out-dated or didn't add as much value as more recent ones about the same topic.

Unfortunately for a few weeks, these will still show up in Google searches and be cached but we hope this will help clear out content and make it easier for you and others to find answers and meaningful discussions here.

Thanks for understanding,

Cheers
Ed

Hi there, are you experiencing this while signed into your account, or when you’re not logged in?

Are these links to forum threads, the banner, or any specific page?

Any info you can provide would help us further!

The message seems to be a somewhat generic error message produced by Lithium (which is used by the Dropbox Forums).

Can you please provide us with some examples of links that trigger the message?

Here are some example links that gives me Access Denied message, even when I'm signed in to my dropbox community account:

 

https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/archive-board/restoring-computer-from-image-file-that-contains-outda...

 

https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/archive-board/Does-uninstalling-dropbox-on-windows-10-delete-files/t...

 

I notice from the urls that they are under archive-board--perhaps that's why I cannot view them. Not sure if this is the same reason as the pages the original poster encountered.
