The file hosting service is currently experiencing an outage that appears to be affecting a significant number of users. Several people took to social media to complain about the issue. When users visited the website they were met with photos of a cat holding an umbrella or drinking from a cup and the text: Error (500).

Dropbox has acknowledged the outage on its status page, which says the website, desktop application and API are all experiencing a "partial outage."
