I'm having trouble with downloading a folder

New member | Level 2

I had 2 folders, both with photos.  I was able to successfully download one of the folders to a .zip but the second continues to dowload as file name "unspecified" 1k

 

I tried creating a new folder and moving the files there, same result.

 

Any ideas appreciated - thanks

When I tried to download a photo folder I got a message that called the download Unspecified. How do I download properly?

What's the size of the folder? When downloading a folder there are limits; 10,000 files or 1GB in size. Anything larger than that will fail.

Yes, you can. Its quicker and easier to download and use the desktop client though: www.dropbox.com/install

ok, but in my case all my folders are in an 1TB External HD and if I install the desktop client it will copy all photos to the notebook HD, which i don't want to and because there is no space. So, how should I do ?

Can you please either start a new thread, or, find a relevant one Robert to try and keep things. There are a few identical topics on the main page of the forums with the same issue.
