DropBox Killing Public Folder

This is just a heads up to let people know that from March 15th 2017 DropBox will make your public folder private and all the links to these files will become deactivated. So any pictures or files you have previously posted links to in your public folder will no longer be available after that date. While they are offering an alternative method for publicly sharing stuff, at this point I am not sure how effective that will be.

Will have to see what happens i guess. I use dropbox to share files with testers and host images i post in the forums here.

They aren't removing the ability to share files.   Just the ability to do it via the public folder.  You can still get a link to a file and share that.  I think any links you have to files in your public folder may go dark.

That's the way I read it too. Come march I'll have to see if any of my images on here go dark.

Just a reminder - 13 days and public folder is no more. I have recieved an email from them that suggests that the only way around this is to install the dropbox desktop app in order to make stuff available for download.
