I've had a plus account for almost 3 years now. last week I started getting notification emails that I'm out of storage space. I thought no way. I finally check today only to discover that the account wa nocked down inexplicably to a basic account? I never received any email or notification that this was going to happen? after 2 years of successful auto renew, apparently this third year dropbox decided just to not do it without notice? Maybe I missed an email notification or something?
Hey @Michael_Steinhofer, sorry to hear about this.
Can you look through your email's inbox and spam/junk folder to see if you can find any email notification about your subscription's renewal sent from Dropbox?
Do you maybe remember cancelling your subscription at some point during your last billing cycle?
Also, how did you upgrade in the first place? Was it through our website directly or via the app store on a mobile device perhaps?
Let me know what you find and we'll take it from there, Michael.
Hey @Michael_Steinhofer, sorry to jump in here!
If you changed the email after the renewal, that could be the reason why you never received any emails.
Can you have a look at the account's transaction history on your Payments page here: https://www.dropbox.com/payments and let me know if you see any helpful info? Does it show the plan as being cancelled, or any unsuccessful efforts to pay?
Ok, so this is odd, but not bad. my first invoice and receipt from 10/23/20 open fine and I can confirm it has my email on the invoice. the second one from 10/23/21 will not open at all? But, since the first one was already set to my email, maybe the second one was as well?
Also, I have logged into the other users email and can see that I changed the email officially over to my email on 4/12/22. Prior to that, her email address had received the renewal notifications.
I guess ultimately it really doesn't matter who received the email reminder. I guess the core issue is why didn't it auto renew.
That being said. I can always just update the account again. Just not sure why dropbox didn't auto renew?
Could it be possible that the other person that received the previous renewal emails, decided to login to the account and cancel the renewal, not knowing that you're actually using the account?
I'd be happy to send you an email, in order for us to look into this @Michael_Steinhofer.
Should I go ahead?
