I too vote the importance of zip functionality from within the web app. I'm in a situation where synching will take 150 days to sync 288K of files at the current rate. I obviously need to work now and can't wait. The alternative in the mean time for me was to download the whole dropbox assets and work offline but even though only 1GB to download I keep getting a message saying the files are too big. To split the files down is near impossible because it seems to be file count not file size that is the issue so I'd be breaking down levels deep into my filing system to do that. Having no sync for 150 days and no download at all is super poor show. It has an impact on my business that is significant. Really lost my love of Dropbox. Support has been average too and I guess with no real answer available, any wonder. Really uncool Dropbox. A must do feature.

This is seriously the most disappointing thing about Dropbox yet. To not be able to download our own files in a one click option is very poor show. It is hard to believe that there are these size restrictions when Dropbox is so easy to ask for payment for more storage but yet find it has these limitations after the fact. I would not have used it if I'd have known I couldn't download.
The main reason I need to urgently download is the synching is taking too long, apparently because I have too many individual files in there. With a new computer it tells me that I'm syncing 100 file an hour which will make it 150 days for the sync to be complete. So, I can't sync and I can't download. I can't work. This is the worst experience.
