Dropbox Crashes

So I have a massive Dropbox library - 30TiB and millions of files - and sometimes the Windows Dropbox client crashes and keeps crashing. I've figured out the easiest way to recover from this is to use the windows advanced options to create a system restore point. Fixed. Stupid but fixed.

You'll need "system protection" turned on for the volume with Dropbox on it.

Update: Turns out turning it on then off might work better.

If you've got an old school ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher and need to update the firmware but keep getting windows driver errors regarding writing to read only memory:

  1. Download ATEM software v6.9 and perform a firmware update via USB
  2. Configure the IP and optionally name
  3. If needed download the latest version and update the firmware via LAN
  4. If you have issues with the latest try 8.1.1.
