Re: To all xp users who were running dropbox

Actually it will let you in with a very old version, but not if its running on xp.
It obviously detects the operating system. They have sent out many messages from well over a month ago warning people about this and it did actually last an extra day. I see now they are claiming that its a security issue with xp as its not been updated for over two years, however many of us do have xp updates till 2019, and really should not be all shoved together with the great unwashed as it seems xp users are seen these days.

the update of Dropbox is pushed by one or more entries in scheduled tasks. So it would be possible to stop the Dropbox client to update itself. But as I wrote in my last mail - it didn't matter. Dropbox didn't let you in with an old version of the client.

Yours sincerely
