    Is bulk upload a fancy way of saying multiple uploads? Because I already did that... Multiple image/file select from Quickpic/Astro, share to dropbox and boom, over 30 files uploaded at once.

      you are correct, bulk means multi-upload. like you, i use my file explorer, or which ever app i'm using, to "Share" to Dropbox for uploads. i only use the app to retrieve data from my cloud because it's faster than opening my browser.

      i did notice after this update, my dropbox folder changed location; from /sdcard/dropbox to /sdcard/android/data/com.dropbox. the /data folder had a nomedia file in it, so my phone quit recognizing my mp3 files. i [cut] the nomedia file and [paste]d it into all the other folders in /data, save com.dropbox. back to normal.

    What happened to my previous Dropbox download folder??!!!

    The download location is hard-coded to some where deep inside the file system.

    I HATE THIS VERSION...

    Please provide the option to set the download directory.

    I agree with Akshara... it is simply unacceptable that you moved my DB folder and don't give me control over where it is. I have dozens of links on my home screen to documents I use regularly along with other apps that use the path I previously had DB in. And, some tablets have multiple mount points where the external SD shows up as sdcard2. I might want DB there and not where you want it.

    Please immediately release an update that fixes this.

    Head over to the dropbox forums to have your say. The update to 2.0 has caused chaos and confusion for many with the cache location change. You can find the forum here
