The answer above suggests it was likely an averaging or display error, but this is much less likely than that your connection simply took a moment to throttle down to the speed you pay for.

Had Quicken 15 including backup files on several files. Seemed like a good idea at the time. Online backups as well as backups to other computers. After a few months or so I started to notice that I was saving 'conflicted copies' in the same folder as the original data. The newest data was on the conflicted copy. I was able to restore Quicken to the ...

I had the same problem on OpenSUSE. I solved it by deleting the hidden files (press: Ctrl+h on the home folder to see it) related to dropbox, that are in /home/user/.dropbox*. Within those hidden files there are files related to configuration of dropbox. After this, try to install the dropbox again; that may solve the problem.

Create two Dropbox accounts, one is used for phone sign-in and the other is used for Windows sign-in. Then from your Windows Dropbox to share whatever the folders you want to be used on phone. This is not a perfect solution but at least you can choose which folder to show up on your phone.

Well, for completeness’ sake, here’s the official take on this: These files are from a filesystem incompatibility somewhere on one of your linked devices (or on one of the linked devices belonging to one of the members of one of your shared folders). Some filesystems like HFS (OS X) and NTFS (Windows) are capable of assigning "extended attributes" ...

Dropbox recently added the ability to create a share link (not just puburl) from command line as well as other new CLI features. For me this is great news.
