Installing Dropbox taking forever

I purchased a new laptop and trying to put my Dropbox files on it and it is taking forever.  Is this normal?

Hi @LLK, thanks for joining the Community!

 

Generally, when settings up your account for the first time, uploading files to the site manually, or using the Dropbox desktop application, can take time because of the upload speed of your ISP, which is usually much lower than the download speed.

 

If you’re using the desktop app, you can check to see if the bandwidth speed for uploads has been restricted using the steps here.

 

Let me know how it goes!
