Dropbox has just released a statement, in which it said that the service is currently up and running for all users across the globe, except the issues with photo tab features for few users.
The popular cloud storage service went offline with a “we are experience some issues” notice on Friday and a group of hackers claimed that they have attacked the Dropbox along with revealing some usernames and emails copied from Pastebin source. Later the company said that the “hack” was a hoax and not real, where it said that the site was down due to the routine internal maintenance.
The company has released the update on Sunday evening and said that the Dropbox is working fine for all users except the photo tab issues. In the morning, around 5 percent of users were facing issues while syncing from desktop client and 2o percent of users were facing issues while syncing on their mobile devices.
The current problem still lying around photos, where the photos sharing is currently disabled and the “Photos” tab is being turned off in Dropbox.com. However, the users photos are still available and can be accessed via desktop client as well as the “Files” tab o the website.
Founded in 2007, Dropbox has 200 million users globally and uses Amazon’s S3 cloud storage service to store the encrypted version of users’ files, which also saves a history of all deleted versions of files for 30 days for all users.
