Failed - Network Error

Failed - Network Error

Downloading files has been impossible for me, regardless of file size I will constantly get 'Failed - Network Error', this only happens with Dropbox and happens in Chrome, Firefox, and Edge in normal or incognito mode, I've tried searching online for a solution and get no useful answers.

Hi there @tPat, let's see what we can do here. 

There could be a security app, antivirus, or third party browser extension/plugin hindering your downloads. 

Could you temporarily disable or close them, and try again?

Let me know how it goes, thanks!

nothing changed, still having the download fail on any file size instantly.

I'd like to have a better look into this with you, so I've sent you a ticket.

Whenever you have a moment, check it out and don't hesitate to get back to me there. 

Looking forward to hearing back from you!
