Uploading raw, jpg and light room catalogues via dropbox.com and getting this error message in red

.DS_Upload error

Files upload fine. 

Thoughts. Also is this best way to upload. I updated my internet speed. I'm currently wirelessly. Do I need to connect via "hardwire."

Hey, @EMC2!
 
You can upload files via the website, but please bear in mind that each file or folder must be 50 GB or smaller. For larger files or folders, you can use the desktop or mobile apps, which don’t have a file size limit.
 
As for the error, could you please try uploading the file from a different browser, using incognito and ensuring that you’re not using any browser extensions? If it does pop up again, could you please send a screenshot of it so as to have a better understanding of what you’re seeing?
 
Thanks in advance! :grinning:

Thanks for making me aware of the 50GB limit. 

I haven't tried another browser yet. I think it's bcause I use a mac. I found this interesting article.

Thanks for getting back to me on this, @EMC2
 
I also wanted to mention to please bear in mind that some small system files aren't synced over Dropbox, which includes .ds_store files 
 
Nonetheless, let me know of any update! :upside_down:
