For a long time my dropbox still using internet bandwidth when is paused.
Has anyone of you the same problem?
Please don't tell me to do the basics like clear installs etc. I have done them all a lot of times (I have more problems with dropbox and we couldn't fix them after many tries with some guys from dropbox support team).
The problem isn't the bandwidth itself, but upload speed. When I upload something on the dropbox I can't use my internet and I need to pause the sync until I stop using my pc. But when I pause the sync on dropbox it still syncing (or use the same bandwidth as before). To resolve this I must "destroy" dropbox task from the task manager.
I just noticed that exact problem. The sync process ignores the pause button as well as the bandwith limits. I was able to immedately resolve the issue by killing the dropbox process in Windows Task Manager.
The Internet Speed Test shows the problem as solved as the upload speed increased from 0.07 Mbps -> 1.88 Mbps
