Dropbox is basically ignoring its upload limit. I've got it set to 100kb ... and it's reporting in task managers 'network' as hitting over 1MB at times. This is not how I believe it should be working. Clearly, something is wrong here. Every other program when limited .. abides by the limit. Dropbox does not. Which means when I want it syncing files I update, it's going to be flooding our internet and making it unusable for my husband.
If you scroll up, I ended up with 2.5mbps, seen in one screenshot. It's always if I'm dumping over more than a couple of small files, that it jumps to 2.5.mbps. Which tends to swamp our ADSL2+ with both the husband and I doing other things at the same time. This is the reason I had the query. Given I've got the limit set to what should be reasonable, and if as I said I do larger dumps of files, it goes over this. This is when for example, when whatever my husband is watching online has issues/won't load pages, etc. Which the moment it happens I check, and dropbox is sitting at 2.5mbps.
So for now I'm lowering it to 10kbps and seeing if that stops it interfearing.
