You won't be able to upload a file that size through the browser to Dropbox. Each file or folder uploaded on dropbox.com can be up to 50 GB. Each file or folder uploaded on the Dropbox desktop app can be up to 2 TB.

Was this an upload through your browser, either with the Transfer feature or an upload to your account? If so, then there's no way to resume an incomplete upload through your browser. You need to start it over again.
