I'm having the same problem with the personal version.  It uploads half way and then comes to a grinding halt, eventually failing.  

Thoughts, anyone?  Dropbox, please advise?


Re: uploading files "Something went wrong"

Having said that, could you try uploading in smaller batches and also try through another browser or incognito, and ensure that you’re not running any browser extensions?
If you’re still having trouble with this, don’t hesitate to give me a nudge. Let me know how it goes!
