My Dropbox is choked
This account's public links are generating too much traffic and have been temporarily disabled!
A reader notify me this morning that my dropbox account is not usable. I currently very busy with projects and don't know if I could mirror them to my another dropbox account (that's 2GB upload for my poor 128Kbps connection). This make me wonder whether my blog is popular? for ~300hits/day? I don't think so. Let see if my account could back to normal again or else.. well.. I don't know what to do. Help me? anyone? sourceforge? googlecode? because this issue would hit back again in the future since this is the first time.
If anyone interested to help please email me, I'll give my account credentials
according to this thread http://forums.dropbox.com/topic.php?id=52227
my account possibly reach 10GB/day.. seriously? How come?
anyway any volunteer? a very kind person with decent bandwidth :-) just to mirror the files to another free file hosting, I'd be very grateful!
since no one replied, this weekend I will start move all download links into one page possibly "other builds" then start mirroring to other account (will takes sometime). I believe that 10GB/day quota provided by dropbox is more than sufficient and very generous at it, what happened is probably someone spread a public link recklessly? I need to change the links in the future once in a while deliberately.
took longer than I thought.. downloads will spread into two dropbox account and now partially available again. Package larger than 50MB will stayed disabled until banning lifted up. Guess I need onr more account to balance the quota
Apparently it's not a regular 72-hours suspension from dropbox (Sadly my request for inquiry regarding the issue hasn't been replied), I will resume the remaining mirroring and all new download will be passed to goo.gl link shortener so it can be monitored but remained a "direct link"
