Hello,

Dropbox Installation went pretty well, but when I start the program getting an error message. For first time I did not choose the location it did in default download folder. After this error I tried to store it in proper location, but still the problem exists. How to install it correctly? Am I doing any mistake? Please explain friends.

Hello,

There is a bug inside the program that’s why it has just happened. You have installed Dropbox from Software Center. So this error is happening.

Uninstall the Dropbox you have now. Then, download the proper package for your Linux.

If that doesn’t give any solution, just select “Don’t Ask Again”. This will normally run Dropbox without any error.

Enjoy Dropbox!

Just try to uninstall and reinstall Dropbox and it should fix the problem. Download the free version of Revo Uninstaller and install it. Once installed, start Revo then select Dropbox among the applications and click “Uninstall”. Follow the normal uninstall process. When you are prompted to restart the computer, click to restart later.

When uninstall is complete, click “Scan” to scan your computer for any leftover files and delete everything it finds. This removes everything the program created on your computer. When it is finished, exit Revo then restart the computer. After booting, download the latest Dropbox client and install it. The latest version at the moment supports Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10.

It requires 2 GB RAM and 1 GB free space. Note: when installing the Dropbox client, don’t change the default installation folder to avoid problems during use.
