You don’t have permission to create a link to this folder ERROR

Explorer | Level 4

This is the firs time I experience this problem.

I've been sharing files and folders for years now and it never happened before.

Is this a known issue and is there a simple solution?

Hi @Krzyniu Z, thanks for posting on the Community!

 

I'm sorry to hear about this matter. Is this occurring on any file or folder you're trying to share?

 

How long have you been experiencing this issue for?

 

Keep me posted!

it looks like my account is blocked. I see this:

You’ve hit the limit of invitations you can send per day. Please try again in 24 hours.

when I try to send invitations.

 

I already waited 3 periods of 24 hours and I think this practice of disabling invitations is unfair.

I am not even sending that many. Besides Dropbox rules don's clearly state what "the limit of invitations" is anyway!

It sounds like you might be experiencing this issue

 

If you have any shared links on your account, try deleting them and giving time until you're able to share links again.
