Common problems

There are several situations when uploading or updating a file fails:

  • The uploaded file is too big and exceeds the maximum file size allowed for your Dropbox plan or you have used all of your Dropbox account's storage quota. You will either need to delete existing files from your Dropbox account or upgrade your plan.

  • The previously selected folder, to which the file is being uploaded to, no longer exists. The Action Flow gets stopped and you will need to select the target folder again.
