attempted to zip too many files error when wanting to download backup

attempted to zip too many files error when wanting to download backup

Hi, iv'e backed up my dropbox files and i'm attempting to download them from the backup site. i'm reffering to: https://www.dropbox.com/backup/

when i go to the website and ask to download it, it tells me "Attempted to zip too many files". this made me loose a heart beat, though i know everything is there. i'm relying on this, which i guess was a fatal mistake. iv'e got all of my important files there, and i need them to continue my work - i used this as actual backup for some files, a big mistake 😞 i know everything is there, but how can i reach it if it can't download them?

Thank you in advance.

the problem was that i didn't choose them seperately inside of the main backup, i thought that i just can't download but i did by selective picking & downloading. very nice, solved
