How to Update DropSend Direct to Version 4.06

Friday, March 1st, 2013

We have some good new for DropSend direct Windows users. We’ve just released a new version of the app. In this release we’ve fixed all the bugs that the previous version of the app had. Here is what got fixed:

  • DropSend uploads get stuck at 96-99%
  • ZIP folders cannot be unpacked
  • Large files cannot be uploaded (“send files error” message)
  • Dropsend crashes while uploading large files/folders


We’ve also fixed problems that users encountered when updating DropSend Direct. But even though we addressed update problems, you need to update to DropSend Direct 4.06 properly to avoid any errors. This is important, so read carefully how you should update the program:

  1. Open your current DropSend Direct installation. You will be prompted to update the program as soon as you launch it. IMPORTANT: ignore the update prompt and click on Cancel to proceed to the main program window
  2. Now click on File and go to Preferences
    DropSend Update 
  3. Navigate to the Updates tab and click on the Update button
  4. Wait for DropSend Direct to download and install the update


Other changes include interface bug fixes and other minor changes.

DropSend Direct 4.05 Is Out

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

Hello Everyone and Happy Holidays! We have some great news for DropShots Direct users – we’ve just released the new and improved version of the program. When we were working on the new version, we tried to take all your feedback into account and fixed all bugs and errors we could find. Here’s what we’ve done:

- We’ve fixed errors that some users experienced when they tried to upload ZIP archives. Now the archives don’t get corrupted anymore and get uploaded as they should.

- Some Vista and Windows 7 users used to complain that updates weren’t working on their system. They either didn’t launch at all or they caused the program to fail to start after an update. This problem has been addressed and now updates work normally on all Windows versions.

- When you browse files, now there aren’t any errors that resulted in displaying created folders incorrectly.

We’ve also fixed login issues, saved passwords issues, autocomplete email issues, pause button errors and other bugs. Overall, the DropSend Direct 4.05 is a lot more stable than the previous version and is a lot more comfortable to use.
