    Recent Dropbox update floods Event Viewer with DbxSvc ID 320 entries


    Be aware that the recent Dropbox update to Ver 29.4.20 causes the DbxSvc service to flood Event Viewer with tens of thousands of information entries (ID 320). You can stop the DbxSvc service to avoid this happening but I'm not sure what the consequences of doing this are.

    Event Viewer message reads: Failed to connect to the driver: -2147024894, retrying in 1000 milliseconds

    philc43, Thanks for the info. The Information message started on both my Win 10 systems at about 8am on July 2. The error is logged every second! I stopped the DbxSvc and the events stopped. In some other searches I just did, some claimed that the service is related to updating Dropbox. Maybe, maybe not.

    I typically do not have DropBox running. I start it up when I want to use it, which is not all that often.
