Is it possible to reactivate an expired file transfer to keep the URL?

Explorer | Level 4

Hi there,

 

I created a Transfer which expired after 7 days and before I had chance to extend it.  This Transfer has now expired but I would like to reactivate the same link if possible to avoid having to send out a new Transfer link.  Is this possible? I have a Business account.

 

Thanks

Hey there, @FatFootballer, welcome to the Dropbox Community! 

 

This isn’t possible, unfortunately. Once a Dropbox Transfer has expired, it can not be reactivated, extended, or resent. 

 

Let me know if you have any further questions. 

 

Cheers

Sad times! Is this a feature we can request somehow? Could be useful.
