  • too_many_write_operations during write to DropBox

    I'm currently using BC 4.2 beta on Windows and Linux. I am recently experiencing multiple too_many_write_operations errors when writing (both, creating and overwriting) files from local to my DropBox. Some files cannot be (over)written, some succeed after a few retries.

    Is this a known error? Would you need more info/data to investigate.

    I'm using DropBox and BC (since v2) to selectively keep data in sync over several machines and it worked like a charm (until this accursed error appeared).

    Thansk for the support!

    Hi Udo,

    It's an error Dropbox documents as the user being throttled for making too many requests in too short of a time. I wasn't able to trigger it with internal testing, so I didn't add explicit retry logic in for it.

    Are specific files always failing? Does it start failing after many uploads or right away? Are you using a personal account or a Dropbox for business sub account?Do you see similar behavior under 4.1.9?
