Shared Link Error 404

Explorer | Level 3


First of all, my name is Aaron, and I need some help with my shared link.

I used dropbox to backup a recording from my church, and I always shared it every week to fellow church member. I'm not really sure when this trouble started, but my friends just complained to me this morning. It's about the link that I gave them not working anymore, it always shows error 404. 

While the files in question are all alive and well in my dropbox account. I don't know how or why, but all my links suddenly goes like that. No notice either from dropbox on my email or wherever. Anyone can help please?

Thank you!
PS: this is my first post and I don't know if I'm posting it at the right category.
