List of file types that Dropbox ignores

List of file types that Dropbox ignores

Is there a full list of files that Dropbox will not load?

 

"You can store web-based files in Dropbox, but you can’t add or move them to your Dropbox account from somewhere else. Web-based files include:

  • Google Docs (.gdoc)
  • Google Sheets (.gsheet)
  • Google Slides (.gslides)"

Hey @joe33478; welcome to our Community!

 

Are you referring to web-based files as the Help Center article outlines or some other specific types of files as well?

 

Also, will you be uploading them via a web browser or through our apps on your device(s) perhaps? 

 

Any additional information will be much appreciated!

I created a new folder on the Dropbox website, dragged a folder from my laptop, and dropped it onto the new DB folder - I then got an error that 200+ files from my laptop would not be copied into DB with the error explanation pasted into my first posting. 
So again, can you tell me the file types that DB will not copy into a folder?

The mentioned file types are the ones affected by this @joe33478.

 

If you bump into this error again when trying to upload your files through our website, could you send us a screenshot so that we can have a visual too?
