Update: Dropbox appears to be back, at least for us here at TC and a lot of users. Still no word on the cause of the outage, which lasted around an hour and a half.
Dropbox is undergoing a pretty widespread service outage, according to our own tests and multiple reports from around the world on Twitter. It’s been down for around 3o minutes as of this writing, and the outage appears to affect both Dropbox connected apps as well as the web-based Dropbox services on its own site. Users are greeted with the message above, and Dropbox has yet to comment on the outage via its public channels.
We’ve reached out to discover the nature and extent of the problem, and will update when we hear more from Dropbox. The last time Dropbox had a significant service outage was back in January, when it took around fifteen hours for service to fully resume.
Dropbox provided the following statement about the outage:
We apologize for any inconvenience that might have been caused. Dropbox is back to normal.
