I can't upload files on the Dropbox site

I can't upload files on the Dropbox site

Kamila2

For a couple of hours I'm trying to upload ANY file onto dropbox website, I have tried Mozilla, Opera and Chrome browser, none of those are working. I have tried clearing cookies/cache, restarting my laptop and nothing. When I'm trying to drag and drop files from my laptop onto dropbox instead of uploading them it downloads them back onto my laptop. When I'm using "upload" button after choosing the file nothing is happening. The uploading works from dropbox app on my laptop but I don't want to use this cause I need more space on my laptop so website dropbox is more convenient for me. Is there any way to fix it asap as I need the dropbox for everyday work?

Can't Upload Into Folder

I created a new folder, but when I click "upload from computer" or drag the file into the folder nothing happens. 

 

I never had a problem with Drop Box in all the years I've been using it and have now discovered there's really no support.

 

We are a record company releasing a new music album, so need answer ASAP, but get the feeling this message is going to take forever to get an answer.

 

In the meantime, will look for another file transfer platform.

I'm having the exact same issue. Advertising photographer here. Been using this for years with no issue. Can't upload any folders to anything...new or existing. Seems like DB is having issues?!@Q

all morning we have had issues uploading, it looks like a lot of 403 errors in downloading javascript.

Agreed, this issue is on the Drop Box side.  Hopefully they know about it and fix the bug quickly.

I don't even get an error message, just a big fat nothing.

Seems a ton of people are having the issue. Funny that Dropbox's site says 'No system errors' and that all's working fine. They have no actual humans to talk to so it might take 72 hours to for them to know what's going on with their own system! Haaaaaaaa

Who's talking
