External Link Bandwidth Monitoring

Explorer | Level 3

As I understand it, there is a daily bandwidth limit on external links. This is understandable, but how can we keep track of this daily bandwidth so that it's just not cut off automatically? It would be nice to have something to monitor the bandwidth to know when one is approaching the limit.

There isnt a way I'm afraid.

Dropbox have always said they wont put one in as its not designed to be used for sales etc. and so should never really get to the huge amounts with standard useage.
