Old shared links stopped working. And new ones are not created. Writes: "You do not have permission to link to this file." And if it does, then an error pops up

Error (404)

We can't find the page you're looking for.

Hey etlay88,

 

Did you check if the file or folder is not deleted or the owner of the folder changed link settings?

There's some other options that could possible solve your problem, check this tip from Dropbox and let me know if anything works: https:confused face:/help.dropbox.com/files-folders/share/shared-link-stopped-working

 

I hope this could be helpful to you.

I have free account. I have owner folder(files). 

the links work if I logged in with my account in the browser.

tips from dropbox (that you sent the link) looked, nothing helped.

Hey @etlay88; I'm sorry to jump in here but I just wanted to mention that it looks like your shared links may have been banned.

 

If that's the case, how long have you been getting this error message?

Yes, I also thought that links were suddenly blocked, but there is no reason to block. in those support could not write, did not find a button :disappointed face:   just here. Probably have to abandon the dropbox, although I have been using it for so many years.
