Dropbox Extension Error Codes

The All-in-One WP Migration plugin uses Dropbox API to communicate with your Dropbox account and store your backups. If there is an error communicating with your storage and the files that are stored there, you might get one of these errors.
Dropbox sets a per-user quota for each user to make sure that the resources available are shared fairly. If you have many other applications or systems connected to your Dropbox account you may encounter issues.

What can you do about it?

If the all-in-One WP Migration plugin cannot connect to your Dropbox account, please sign out from your account and sign in again in the Dropbox Settings page of the plugin on your WordPress Console.
Ensure that there are no other applications using your Dropbox at the same time as the All-in-One WP Migration extension. If you have other 3rd party applications or other services that are connected to your Dropbox drive, consider stopping or uninstalling them. If you share large numbers of documents with other people or the public, consider an alternative solution to Dropbox.
