Hey there @MoniqueWill - sorry to hear about this

Could you elaborate on the matter for me though? Have you tried logging into that account and it's not letting you? Do you get an error by any chance?

If you do, could you post a screenshot so that I can have a better understanding? 

If you don't remember your password, or you need to reset it, you can visit our website here: https://www.dropbox.com/forgot

Please enter the email address associated with the Dropbox account you're trying to regain access to. You'll then receive an email from no-reply@dropbox.com with the steps to reset your password.

If you don't receive an email after a reasonable amount of time, please check your spam folder to ensure that no-reply@dropbox.com is not blocked. You can also add no-reply@dropbox.com to your address book and request another password reset email.

I hope this helps to some extent and please keep me posted on your findings Monique.

Hey no I have no idea it’s just saying it’s disabled! I know my email & password for it! The email is : [email address removed for security reasons]
All it says is this account is disabled whenever I try to log in!!!

Thanks for the quick response Monique - much appreciated.

I'd really need a screenshot to identify the root cause of the problem here - could you forward me a screengrab of the exact error you get so I can have a better look into this?

Thanks!

Oh, I see now - thanks for the update! 

While you're at it, could you try to login to your account from a computer as well and let me know if you're getting the same error?

Re: Why was my account disabled?

I was unable to screenshot but here is what happened, I was sending out a message for everyone who is apart of my Dropbox... which is between 500-700 people. Some people receive the picture I was sending more than once. So as soon as I got done sending it... (took me an hour). About 5 minutes later it logged me out and said I couldn’t log back in and they said my account was disabled! I can’t log in, it says my password and stuff is wrong which I know that’s false. So whenever I get on the actual website to log in, it says my account is disabled... I have valuable things in there!

Sorry to hear you're having issues with uploading a screenshot here Monique - could you try from another browser as it's crucial to our troubleshooting process?

If you're still having troubles with this, please let me know so I can reach out to your Dropbox associated email address to work on this together.

Thanks again!
