Cannot create links

Cannot create links

New member | Level 2

Hello,
I'm trying to share a file. However, I cannot do it, as dropbox says that "I don't have permission to create a link to this content". All files say that. I've never been banned, suspended or anything of this sort. Can I get some help?

Alright, I've received an e-mail stating, that my "public link" has been temporarily suspended because it was generating excessive traffic. It also says, that I can undo this suspension on my profile. How?

Hi @Dreh, thanks for contacting us!

 

It sounds like you might have banned links on your account. 

 

Is this the first time you received a ban on your shared links? Generally, you would need to wait for 24 hours before you can share links on your account.

 

Could you try again tomorrow and let me know if the issue is resolved? Thanks!
