401: Unauthorized

What it means

A Dropbox server could not fulfill this request

What to do

Check that you are signed in to the correct account, or visit dropbox.com

404: Not found

What it means

The file or folder you’re trying to access wasn’t found at the URL you’ve entered

What to do

First, check the URL of the shared link you’re trying to access. If that doesn’t work, and the file or folder was shared by someone else, contact the file or folder owner.

429: Banned links or file requests

What it means

Shared links and file requests are automatically banned when they generate traffic that exceeds our bandwidth or download limits

  • Basic account limits—20 GB of bandwidth and 100,000 downloads per day
  • Pro and Business account limits: 200 GB per day and unlimited downloads

What to do

Shared links and file requests are banned temporarily (one day for the first time) and will be restored when the ban has expired

439: Too many requests

What it means

Too many files are being downloaded at once

What to do

Try to download your files in smaller batches

507: Insufficient storage

What it means

You are over the Dropbox storage quota.

What to do

You will need to bring your account under quota by moving files out of Dropbox or increasing your storage space.
