I recently began having an issue downloading zip files or folders.
After a few seconds of downloading, the download fails with a 'Failed - Network Error' - And resuming results with the same error.
I have tried on multiple browsers with the same result, I have tried on incognito with the same result, I have tried a reboot, reinstall, and clearing cashe/browser.
I can download individual files, but often get the same error, but when I resume they finish. Downloading each file individually is not an option.
The zip / folder are under 20gb and under 10,000 files.
I have seen several other threads noting this issue with no clear solution, and as I said it was never an issue till yesterday.
Same issue on Chrome, Firefox, and Edge. Also same issue on Mac and PC.
My internet is stable and clocking 450+ mbps download - 20+ mbps upload.
This has occured with multiple files from clients as well as when I add to my own account.
I do not have any 3rd party extensions.
Antivirus is standard windows 10, and I haven't made any changes or additional security.
The files range from 100mb - 3gb, definietly not over 20gb. As I mentioned I have issues downloading even the individual files and often need to hit resume.
I haven't made any changes to my network, haven't added any additional security or VPN .. etc
This only became a problem this week so im not sure what could have changed.
This is my home network, and I dont really have another network to test on.
OK I need some serious help here. I got time sensitive downloads from several links that have to be downloaded by the 30th. I have tried several browsers, clearing my cash, resetting my router and modem, restarting my computer, using an incognito tab, I don't have plug ins running, i tried with and without firewalls and the same thing always happens. I go to download the zip files and I always get Failed: network error. The files very in size but are less then 20G. I have one that is 8.9G and it went to 8.7G before it failed. Help please. I do not want to pay for a monthly service or anything like that. I have had no issues until this week. I download these files about once a month with no previous problems. I also have had no issues with other cloud services like Drive, sync, airbridge, etc. All issues occur with just dropbox.
