This is an update they implemented in the last couple of weeks: they have restricted users from generating links until the file has finished uploading.  Why? So recipients don't get a "404 error page" on early links.  Funny thing is, the error page isn't even an error page, as it simply said "Uh oh, file is still being uploaded, check back in a while", which was a perfectly valid solution.

 

If you think it's a terrible idea, please chime in and upvote: https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Dropbox-ideas/Please-don-t-block-me-from-generating-a-link-for-a-fil...
