Disable Dropbox Upload Speed Limits

Published December 5, 2012 - 2 Comments

Have you ever thought that it seems to take a really long time to upload your files to Dropbox?  You’re right!  One of the lesser known facts about Dropbox is that the default setting automatically limits the speed of uploads.  (Download speeds can also be limited, but this is not the default setting.  Only uploads.)  This probably isn’t an issue unless you’re trying to upload multimedia files such as a large presentation, a movie, or the latest batch of family photos… but really… do you really want it to take more time than is necessary?  Unlikely.

Thankfully you can easily disable this setting with the simple click of a mouse button.    Check out this little screen capture video that I made to find out how!

(yes.. I’m playing with new software… sorry…  the video is quite small, but if you click full screen, it looks pretty nice.  Will keep working on figuring this stuff out!)
