Insultingly slow download

Insultingly slow download

Long term pro user here. The download speed is a disaster and keeps causing me serious productivity problems. Several hours to download a couple of gigs in 2021, really? It renders DB completely useless for me. I routinely download from other cloud services at around 3-6Mbps. Unless there's an actual fix I'm not going to put up with this any longer. I start wondering whether this is by design in order to prevent users from migrating their data all too easily..

Hey @Martin N.4, I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble with this!

Just to have a better idea of your setup, can you let me know which version of the app you have installed?

Also, are the bandwidth settings for the app limited at all?

Let me know and we can go from there!
