Re: Getting File Too Big Error When It's Not

If you're trying to attach the actual file to an email message then you won't be able to. It's far too big. The average allowed attachment size for email is 10MB. Some email systems allow slightly larger attachments while others have a limit as low as 2MB. You'll never be able to send a 423MB file as an actual email attachment. Instead, you want to send a link to the file.

I am having the same issue. In my case I'm attempting to upload a video from photos on my iPhone. I have the latest version of the Dropbox app on my iPhone, but I still get the 413 error. Unable to upload to Dropbox.

It's happened to me as well. Usually with my iPad. It usually means there isn't enough disk space. Free up some space on your device. That always works for me.

Hello Lemmy1984. I used a Workflow to download a public YouTube video, save in camera roll (opcional) and then upload to Dropbox. It run well at first (both in iPhone and iPad) in a couple of days, then error 413  display. The problem was intermittent. Some hours later the workflow was doing OK but then the problem reappears. Any explanation? What means error 413?
