Dropbox wants access to PC and Mac kernels despite developer outrage

Q: Dropbox wants access to PC and Mac kernels despite developer outrage

CLOUDY FILE GULPER Dropbox has come under fire from tech savvy chaps who are not happy about the company gaining access to a PC or Mac's operating system kernel.
Dropbox's Project Infinite is aimed at moving the service beyond being just a browser-based interface and integrating it more tightly with an OS so that files can be plonked into cloud storage in a more seamless way.
Dropbox also wants this deeper integration with a computer’s operating system and local file storage to prevent what it calls the "untrained intern problem".
This means that Dropbox wants to stop an inexperienced employee removing files from a shared Dropbox folder and screwing up the cloud synchronisation and file access for everyone.

I think that Windows 7 is thinly veiled plot to control premium content and the rest is subterfuge. Am I paranoid? I had refrained from installing SP1 for Vista Ultimate on my machine although curiosity got the better of me when I finally installed SP1 and, as one might guess, my system was wiped. No big deal. I lost a few days worth of work although, after my rage subsided , I restored Vista. Then, for the first time in almost two years I turned on Windows updates. In this way, I could see the net effect of automatic updates. I could see that my entire system has been wiped again and irreversibly altered. Spyware has infected my machine , a variety of functions are no longer operable . Hasn't anyone noticed that Updates can change the operation of Windows? A few days later my desktops were also wiped out while trying to install SP1.

A:Vista Outrage with updates

Sorry but I can't say that I have. Not only is SP1 installed on Vista but the SP2 beta as well. I've been hearing favorable reports from others who elected to install the beta for the upcoming second service pack.

My operating system is Mac OS X Version 10.7.5. Earlier, I accidentally quit Dropbox (from my Menubar). The green checkmark that indicates all files are updated was still there prior to my quitting the application. But when I quit Dropbox, it disappeared from my Menubar. I then downloaded and installed the latest version of Dropbox for Mac, and now the icon appears on my Menubar... but it's still connecting. It's been like this for around 4 hours already. I don't understand why my Dropbox folder doesn't indicate "connected" and why I can't access the Dropbox website, because I'm able to connect to the Internet.

I need to access my updated Dropbox folder (urgent). Please help, and thanks in advance!

Hello,                                              Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!Just hit Esc + Refresh and unit will reboot. You will see a screen that tells you OS verification is disabled. That?s the recovery screen. From there you can reboot into developer mode by pressing Ctrl + D.Note: that doing this will wipe all data from your device. Basically, the HP Chromebook 11 will reformat your storage space and set you up with a fresh version of Chrome OS with developer privileges. Once you log in with your Google account info, all of your settings, apps, and extensions will be re-downloaded, so there?s not much risk involved, but you will lose any files in your downloads directory, so make sure to back them up if you need them.Hope this answers your query, If you have any queries please reply back to me.Have a great day!

We've created a large access database using Access 2002 devleoper for each computer in the building. On a majority of the computers the program works fine, but on a few it doesn't. By Double-Clicking on the desktop icon the program begins to load but only goes so far then basicly stops. Checking the task manager it doesn't show the program running under the applications tab but shows msaccess.exe under the processes tab. There is no CPU usage for that file and I have to log off and log back on again. All computers are running WIN2k. The two particular computers that don't work are running wireless to the server to get the data using Cisco wireless cards and access points. Is it possible the mdac needs updating or certain drivers are out of date?

Hi there,

So my dropbox has stopped working on my win 7 pc. It started first with the tray icon disappearing and now it doesn't sync or anything at all.

I tried writing to dropbox support but they said they didn't have time to respond to my enquiry (something along those lines), so here I am asking you guys.

A little info that might be relevant. When my computer was set up, it was given the name PC. I wanted to change that, so I found a resource that explained how. A little registry editing and some other stuff. I don't know if this has had an effect or not, but thought I should mention it anyways.

Hope you can help.

Hello All,

Just recently my company purchased Office 2000 Developer Edition because they were in need of purchasing the Access Runtime Library, to distribute their Access Databases.

However as of yet, I have been unable to use the Access 2000 Runtime Development Tools to distribute these databases due me not understanding the process clearly (previously in Access 97 it was a case of install the program and away you went, now I haven't got a clue where to start as we weren't given any software manuals).

An urgent response would be appreciated

Many Thanks In Advance

Dear forum readers,

I have a problem when trying to install:

Windows 8 Developer Preview with developer tools English, 64-bit (x64)

When using the DVD tool from Microsoft as explained in one of the tutorials in this forum,
I receive the following error message:

The disc does not have sufficient free space.

I use a 4.7GB DVD disc, and the size of the Windows 8 Developer Preview with tools English, 64-bit (x64) iso file
size is: 4.83 GB.

Of-course this is the source of my problem, and i need a way to fix it.

What i am doing currently, is downloading the Windows 8 Developer Preview without tools.

I have read some solutions, but they did not offer what i am looking for.

I need a way to install the complete version with developer tools, including:

64-bit Windows 8 Developer Preview
Windows SDK for Metro style apps
Microsoft Visual Studio 11 Express for Windows 8 Developer Preview
Microsoft Expression Blend 5 Developer Preview
28 Metro style apps including the BUILD Conference app

I only have a normal DVD drive, no USB stick of the required size, but I have a second hard-disk with sufficient space.
AND I have an external USB hard-disk with sufficient space.

Tried to install from local hard-disk in Windows 7 by using the setup.exe in the sources directory, gives me the following error:
To install Windows, make sure that the partition on your bootdisk has at least 1243 Megabytes (MB) of free space.

Hello again,

I found out that these extensions are supposed to make it where I can export my access databases as .exe files. This would be great, since then I could just have a .exe for ones in the office to run, so that no one could edit forms, tables, etc.

Now, I googled it, and got this site. I can't seem to find where to actually download it however.

Is this a good fix for what I am wanting to do? This way, everyone in the office wouldn't have to have access, they could just run the .exe, and that would allow them to use the forms just as they would if they had the database itself.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I'm unable to access dropbox and imgur (from what I've noticed). Neither on my laptop nor my android.
Have tried

Different browsers.
Deleted cache, cookies (ccleaner cleaned basically)
Switched off my modem+router, laptop, android.
What did work was changing my DNS to and (google's DNS) under IPv4 protocols, but I don't really understand why this worked (no technical knowledge, just remembered doing this years back for such a problem).
Anyway, by changing DNS I can access said sites on my laptop, but still my android is unable to connect (Both site & application).
Additionally, I can access both the sites without changing DNS if I use a proxy.
So can you decipher what exactly is the issue and how do I get it fixed?

A:Unable to access some sites & their apps (Imgur & Dropbox)

The DNS is a server which looks up the name you type - ie dropbox.com and converts to a number
Domain Name Server

You may have an issue with the ISP DNS or it maybe the router

I would power off the router and switch back on and see what happens

Hey everybody

I've been trying to figure this out for a while, but just can't seem to get it to work right.

I have the Microsoft Office Access 2003 Developer Extensions, which has a packaging wizard, that is used to package up a Access database and include a runtime environment, so users without access on their computer can use a database.

I have access on the computer in my office, so I take the file I want to package, and run the wizard, creating a setup file for the database and runtime. Now, I go over to the server, run the setup program, and have it installed on the server.

I can run the database on the server fine. I open it up, it runs in runtime mode, just as the package wizard said it should, and I can do whatever I want. The problem I am having is, I try to create a share, so that I can share this program with users on the network.

When I do this, it just doesn't work right. It is saying that it can't find the file "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\ifg_agent_database\ifg_agents_modified_10_13_05.mdb"

Any ideas on what is going on?

Also my Norton Antivirus detects no virus when I run a full system scan, but when I restart it pops up and finds tons of them automatically , I'm assuming these virus/trojans or whatever pop up after a program initiates them.

I installed FedoraCore (2.6.15-1.2054_FC5) from the iso images I burned onto CDs. That version however did not allow me to compile the linux driver for the Ralink RT2500 wireless card in my Averatec 3250. I upgraded the kernel to (2.6.16-1.2111_FC5) and after doing that, I was able to compile the linux driver for my wireless card. Everything appeared to be fine, i.e. the iwconfig showed me that ra0 was associated with RT2500 and I was able to put in the settings of my Linksys home network. However, when I called ifconfig, I could see that the computer is still associating my network activity with eth0 (associated with VT6102 (Rhine II) card). Since my wireless network, that works under WindowsXP, uses IRQ 11 there, I tried to set the IRQ to 11 in the Network Configuration wizard and when I rebooted into kernel (2.6.16-1.2111_FC5) it froze on me.

I still can boot into (2.6.15-1.2054_FC5), but I would like to get rid of the ..16-1.2111.. kernel in order to try again. How do I do this (getting rid of the kernel that doesn't work)? Do I have to start from scratch, i.e. re-install the Fedora I have on my disks or is there a way to delete specific files to remove the newer, but frozen kernel?

Would appreciate any help I can get.
Thank you!

My home account isn,t the free one, and I,d expect to be able to login to my work files using my email/password etc? Its not a security issue on my work account or anything as I can take my work lappy home every night and access through it. Can you run two separate Dropbox accounts from one machine?

Dropbox by default does not backup your computer. Now you could do this a few ways. I think the easiest would be to use something such as Acronis, or Windows Backup and save the backups to the Dropbox folder (when you install the Dropbox software on your computer there is a Dropbox folder that is created and synced to the cloud)

I think the real issue with that is going to be the space limitation. Might want to look at something such as Back Blaze

Hello - After years of successfully using DropBox on my various devices, all of which allowed me to access all documents as most recently saved, I have suddenly hit a problem.
On my main machine - a Desktop as below - I save documents in my Dropbox folder but despite seeming to be in DropBox, they are not accessible from my other devices. Older documents are accessible. I think this means that I am saving it to a folder in my Hard drive called DropBox, but that is not going to the DropBox cloud.
I think I have mistakenly adjusted a setting, probably when I was setting up my new Surface Pro with DropBox. Any help much appreciated as I am lost without it.
Many thanks

When ever I try to open SQL Developer in windows vista it doesn't open, I don't get an error message or anything, it just doesn't work.

I have tried running it in different compatibility modes but that doesn't do anything, so I am not sure what to do next. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated,


P.S. I am using Vista Home Premium 32-bit, if that makes any difference.

I am using IE8 on windows xp pro sp2.
I am opening developer tool bar from tools menu. Now when I click on the html page for which I have opened developer tool bar, this page comes in front and developer tool bar goes behind the page. Because of that, I can not select sections of the page which are behind the developer tool bar, when I opened it.

How can I make sure that developer tool bar always stays on top of the page for which its opened ?
