File upload times(SOLVED)
« on: October 25, 2015, 04:04:41 pm »
Hello Peppermint people. I would like your opinion about something that I think is presenting a problem for me. Considering my equipment and an internet upload speed of right around 1mbps, how long should I expect it to take to upload a video file of about 470MB into my Dropbox.com account? I'm concerned because I did just that this morning and it took just over an hour with nothing else occupying my internet connection. I estimated it would take around 20 minutes but that was just a guess. Does that sound normal or is something amiss?

UPloading to dropbox has always been slow .. at least it always has been for me.

Well it's normal for me .. and other people have also said dropbox uploads are slow no matter which OS you use.
