Dropbox downloads exceeding the limit of 200 GB per day

Dear music lovers, recently it happened several times that Dropbox downloads from my blog were not available, due to the fact that the download volume exceeded the limit of 200 GB per day. If this happens Dropbox blocks downloads for a day. As Dropbox doesn't offer any way to get around this, the only solution is to post in the future less, as I used to do over the last years. Only recently I posted more frequently. Perhaps I will do now only one post every 5 or 7 days and hopefully this will keep the amount of downloads beneath the 200 GB limit. For those who were not able to download I just can only ask them to be patient and wait till things get back to normal. I also ask you, not to share downloadlinks on other platforms as this can generate an enormous increase of downlaods. Thank you.

As flac files are larger, perhaps we should focus on mp3 to give more visitors an opportunity. Nice to see your posts are so popular.

This limitation is maybe to celebrate the Dropbox' quotation in Wall street next week....

Is there a way we could help pay for larger access too? It seems sharing costs makes a lot of sense. A lover of your selections...

thank you.

Thank you very much for your kind offer. But I have already the largest access. Let's just see if this gets back to normal soon. If not, then I have to think about other possibilities.

Hello Tawfiq:

If you have any downloads on Dropbox that are WAV files, you can reduce their file size by 50% by using FLAC.

I always save the files to my own Dropbox account, which I don't think counts against your bandwidth usage. So therefore i would suggest to others who have a Dropbox account -- please do the same and then download locally to your own computer later.

Best of luck to you!

Richard
