I created a Dropbox destination.
I created a backup job that referenced that destination.
I allowed the backup to run on a schedule, and I also fired it off manually.
I received emails telling me the backup ran to completion, and I see those backups in Backupbuddy.  Just under 7MB in size.

Nothing arrived in Dropbox.

I tried manually sending one of them to my Dropbox destination, and was rewarded with the pop-up

Your file has been scheduled to be sent now. It should arrive shortly.

Nothing in Dropbox.

So, how can I get this to work?

I have exactly the same problem. I connect to my dropbox account, but I can’t send anything to my dropbox.
