The Dropbox outage aftermath Fallout: Suffice it to say, users who relied on Dropbox for their file storage needs weren't happy when their drives disappeared for a day. Dropbox customers took to Twitter to voice their dissatisfaction, using the hashtag #DropboxDown to organize the complaints.

"Dropbox is down. Users are wailing. Can't trust cloud 100%," one user said.

"I'm in a full flop sweat now that @Dropbox is down. Tried syncing lecture readings for the past half hour," wrote another.

Fix: Dropbox never divulged what went wrong on D-Day 2013, but Amazon sent out statements assuring publications that the outage had nothing to do with its oft-blamed Amazon Web Services.
