    Hi folks, been using Dropbox for a while ansd recently i got this error when clicking on my (public) links :

    "Error (509)
    This account's public links are generating too much traffic and have been temporarily disabled ! "


    Looked up for more explanation on the Dropbox help section but still unsure what it means...

    Is it because i may have a very large file in my Public Links that gets downloaded, resulting in a lot of data being downloaded from my Public Links ?
    Or just tiny files that gets downloaded by a shitload of people ?

    Is it about how much data is transferred (regardless of how many files and how large those files are) or how many users are downloading my shit ?

    I guess the former but since most people are using dropbox here, I guess somebody could shed some light and tell me how they cope with it.

    Haven't encountered that problem..yet. But what I can get out of that message, I guess it's the total amount of data that is transferred.

    You're using too much bandwidth for a free account.

    'ight !

    Any idea about the bandwidth exact limit ? I guess the "popular" and semi-large files such as the Ola Mixing Packs are to blame...
