Dropbox not working?

Has anyone noticed that as of today Dropbox is now blocked in Kunming, maybe even China? Does anyone else use dropbox, and is experiencing this problem? I can get on with a VPN, but without it, dropbox seems to be a no go website.

It's kind of annoying the "great" Chinese firewall. I use it to share files with my students, now that it is blocked I need another alternative.

Does anyone know of a Chinese equivalent to dropbox?

it's not an alternative to dropbox, but QQ allows you to send very large files.

Yeah I am familiar with QQ's file transfer. But the problem is files are stored for only 7 days on their servers. I need more of a long term cloud storage and file sharing system.

I've had trouble with drop box for the past week. Google drive works even less often. About the only one that works 90% of the time is Microsoft One drive. Sometimes there is a significant delay(5 to 10 minutes) before it starts working, especially when trying to upload files.

When Windows Update and OS X update don't even connect I really wonder what they are thinking.... They even block or significantly slow down update servers for Linux... all 0.0001% of the population that uses it... Although they are probably targeting servers in that case.

The whole idea behind it is to block terrorists from communicating on the internet, according to a Chinese news report my wife told me about.

If the terrorists really want to communicate, they will always find a way. Cutting of 90% of the internet won't help.

So I tried onedrive, which worked fine, but now that also seems to be blocked. Maybe time to give kanbox a try.
