Why does a 100MB video file not sync with my Dropbox even though I have 2GB space?

When I add small documents and PDFs to my Dropbox, it easily gets synced. But when I tried syncing a 100 MB file, it didn’t sync and got a red cross sign on file that probably means it did not get synced. I have 2GB. Please let me know whether this is a problem with my internet or something else.

    You can try the bad_files_check by clicking the link below:

    Other reasons could be incompatible characters (see @ha14:disqus post) or maybe you don't have enough space left? Are the 2GB your actual free space or your current storage limit?

    Keep in mind that shared folders you are "connected to" also account to your space!

    You can visit the Account page to see how much space is used respectively free.
