    Hello there,

    I have 5 worpdress installations that do a file backup every night which is uploaded to my Dropbox account.

    Problem is, I very often get errors like

    2012/08/30 04:38.55: 3. tentative d'envoi de fichiers vers Dropbox...
    2012/08/30 04:38.58: [ERREUR] DropBox API: (503) Your app is making too many requests and is being rate limited. 503s can trigger on a per-app or per-user basis.
    2012/08/30 04:39.00: [ERREUR] DropBox API: (503) Your app is making too many requests and is being rate limited. 503s can trigger on a per-app or per-user basis.
    2012/08/30 04:39.00: [ERREUR] Étape abandonnée, trop de tentatives!

    SO, is it because BackWPUp handles the uploads in a way that Dropbox considers not suitable, or is it because Dropbox considers that the backups from 5 different sites are too many ?

    Kind regards
