Thanks for the answer. The problem has been resolved. This happened due to a lot of traffic. After upgrading tariff plan from Basic to Plus, the ability to create links resumed.

Hi @IreneHelix, thanks for joining the Community!

 

I'm sorry to hear about this. Are you experiencing this issue on any file in your Dropbox account?

 

Are these files located in a shared folder owned by another user?

 

Keep me posted!
