I scanned a documented and it's showing the error "Can't Save. There was a problem saving the file. Try again later"
I tried to disable wifi and use mobil internet to no avail. The internet works fin in the browser. Why can't I just save the scan in the files then? Ah so disappointed! Is there a way for me to save the document somehow?
I'm on iOS 13, iPhone Pro Max, Dropbox Plus plan and there's more than 1TB free space.
Hi @soid, thanks for checking in with us on the Dropbox Community - welcome aboard!
As a first step, could you let me know if you're following these steps to saving a scanned document with your iOS?
If you are, have you by any chance tried clearing your Dropbox mobile app's cache? Maybe that will do the trick.
Keep me posted!
Hi Lusil, thanks for your reply. If I open the Dropbox app, it shows the document saving dialog and I can't go to the Dropbox app without dismissing the scanned document.
I guess the document is lost for me since I hasn't been able to save it for the last 3 hours and it doesn't have any other options to export it in any way.
I'm highly disappointed because I don't wanna scan 20 pages again and find out I can't save them, so I'm unlikely to use the dropbox scan again. I guess I'd like to file a bug report and hope developers fix in the future, otherwise it's unusable beyond 1 or 2 pages scans.
How can I file a bug report?
Thanks for getting back to me and for your feedback on this, @soid.
Just to ensure that we cover as much initial troubleshooting ground as possible, could you also check if you've got sufficient space on your mobile device to create a scanned doc?
Let me know how it goes!
Thanks for checking that out for me, @soid.
At this point, I'd recommend continuing via email so that we can have a better look into this behavior.

Hello @NicciSmith, I hope you're having a good day so far!

Let me know and we'll go from there!
Could you try reinstalling the mobile app @NicciSmith to see if that helps?
Since you mentioned you're using a paid Dropbox plan, you won't run into the Basic plan's 3 device limit when reinstalling the app.
Let me know how it goes!
