Problem syncing Dropbox in Windows


I’m using Joplin portable 1.0.174 with windows 10, and trying to sync it with dropbox. I get the following error message:

Completed: 04/12/2019 11:09

Last error: Error: POST files/upload: Error (409): {“error_summary”: “path/insufficient_space/…”, “error”: {".tag": “path”, “reason”: {".tag": “insufficient_space”}, “upload_session_id”:

Also installed Joplin in my android phone and sync works perfectly, I see the files on my computer dropbox file.


Wouldn't that mean you have insufficient_space on your account?

I just created the dropbox account, so I have 2 GB free. Besides synchronization happens perfectly fine with the android joplin app.

It might work with other clients, but it’s the desktop one that’s trying to create a file on Dropbox, and Dropbox sends back this error. There’s not much we can do on Joplin side.

Well, as a workaround I used the filesystem sync method and it seems to work, so I guess this will be enough.

Thanks for the help!

For anybody with these issues, I contacted Dropbox and they said they weren’t sure way was happening.
I managed to get past the issue by uninstalling the program, deleting the appdata, restarting the computer, and reinstalling. Then it came up with the option to link to the dropbox account again, and everything worked.
