Hi,

I was having issues the other day trying to download a large file from my dropbox folder because of bad wifi.  It kept resetting and it looks like dropbox cut me off from sharing links.  I can't find a way to get this corrected.  Can someone help?  Thanks in advance.

Hey @orbitat, thanks for joining us on the Dropbox Community!

It sounds like your links might be banned, due to excessive traffic they might have generated, or the contents were downloaded too many times. 

You can see more info about this here. This will expire soon though, so no need to worry. 

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi @infected521, bans on shared links are generally temporary for 24 hours. Are you able to view your shared links today?
