I have an old free account with 5 devices synced. One of them is a Mac running MacOS 10.11. I upgraded the Mac's internal drive by cloning it to an externally-mounted SSD and then installing the SSD in the Mac. When I re-booted, I got a "login to Dropbox" dialog, and when I logged in, it required that I unlink devices to reduce my count to 3.
That doesn't make sense, since existing free users should be grandfathered with our current devices, and the devices have not changed.
Are there any workarounds to make Dropbox accept that this device has not changed? One issue might be that the old drive and the new drive have different volume names (e.g., Huey vs Dewey).
@XXPepper .... sadly not in this case they wont as the user initially had 5 devices linked to their account. Unlinking this one takes them to 4 which is still above the new policy limit of 3 for none-paying users.
