    Sometimes, during an upadte, an oauth token can become corrupt. Deleting and re-installing the plugin should fix the issue.

    Thanks, I’ll try that.

    I’m using WP 3.5 and WPB2D 1.4.2 and still experiencing this error. Have deactivated, deleted and reinstalled WPB2D as well as logged out and in Dropbox with no results.

    Hi I am having the same problem I have wp 3.4 and not able to run anybackups

    anything i can do to see why it is doing this..

    thanks, I deleted and reinstalled your plugin and now it work on wp 3.5 thanks!

    I have the same issue with WP 3.5 and WPB2D 1.4.2. I have removed and reinstalled the plugin as suggested, logged in and out of Dropbox, etc. It had been working at one point, but there was no DB backup. A thread suggested the remove and reinstall, which I did. Now I get an error “The request to link the app is invalid.” The plugin states”There was an error authorizing the plugin with your Dropbox account. Please try again.”

    I can confirm it works after reinstalling. Had the same problem, error authorizing. WP 3.4.2 and WPB2D 1.4.2

    This fixed the issue for me. Is wpb2d running OK on wp 3.5.1?
