my friends are responding that they cannot view the shared link and getting to sign in page with 404 error

i have checked all the sharing settings on your forum, nothing is changed from what it was from last 3-4 years, all of a sudden it isnt working and i have lot of people whom i have shared these links with and constantly updates the same files 

this is really need a fixing and i need some serious help with this ASAP

 

my friends/colleagues response that dropbox links were good because they dont require sign in to view and if they need to create account than better use google or MS

 

Please note i have access to both Gsuite and One drive with 2TB storage but i am using dropbox for sharing information more because of the same reason of people not requiring to sign in, please help me to stay on dropbox

Hey @sanjayhanda, thanks for joining our Community!

It sounds like your links are probably banned due to excessive traffic, most likely because your recipients download the files a lot.

If this is your first time, the ban will expire in 24 hours, however, you'll need to be careful, not to exceed your daily bandwidth limit, which you can see in the hyperlinked article above.

Let me know if you have any questions.
