I’m using Dropbox for the first time and it’s taking forever to upload my files. Not sure why?

Dropbox uploads at the speed of your own internet connection. Initial uploads can take a long time but should speed up as the files get bigger.

Okay thanks Mark! My internet is slow which may explain why it took about 3 days to upload!
