Hi there @dissapointedcrow, thanks for reaching out. 

Your support options depend on the sort of account that you have, and you can find yours by going to this page

In any case, we're more than happy to help look into this with you from here!

Have you tried creating a shared link from another browser or an incognito window by any chance? 

Let me know and we'll take it from there, cheers!

I am also having this issue with my Dropbox account. It just started happening in the last few days. Cannot create links. I get an error message saying "Couldn't copy the link. You don't have permission to create a link to this content."

I have not had this issue previously.
