Server took too long to respond

Level 6

Has anyone else started also getting the "server took too long to respond" a lot when trying to copy a Dropbox link this week?

Edit by Moderator: Moved from Time Left in Sync has been removed (Feature Request) as it's unrelated.

Hey there @emmasmartacus  - how are you today?

Could you post a screenshot of the exact error message you get just to make sure we're on the same page?
