Getting an error message "Folder not found" when I include a Dropbox link in a .pdf.

Hi, I keep getting an error message of "folder not found" when I include a link to my dropbox portfolio in a pdf and then click on it.  I know I have done this before and it has worked.  I don't know why it isnt working now.  Can anyone please help.  Thank you, Alisa

Re: dropbox link in PDF on PC

Are you making sure you're using the "create link" button from the Share menu instead of copying the URL in the browser?

And also @acapaldi make sure the links are not relative ones - they only work on the one machine created on and not any others.
