Message: Too many files... when downloading

Message: Too many files... when downloading

Hi

I am downloading several folders from my Dropbox and get a message (translated): Tried to pack to many files. 

First I got it when I chose several folders, and that is understandable. But after a while I get this message when trying to download a singel folder.

I thought it might be a hickup in the browser so I restarted it, but the error continues, even when I tried another browser.

Can anyone help?

Thanks!

When downloading a folder or multiple files at one time as a Zip file, it needs to be less than 250GB in size with fewer than 10,000 files.
