    Can you clarify about the reports a bit? Do you want to know about the frequency/access to downloads or do you just want to know about any errors? Are you currently having problems with links breaking? Commented Jun 1, 2013 at 9:53

I dont think this is possibly in Dropbox although it is on the wishlist for Dropbox (https://www.dropbox.com/votebox/14/analytics-statistics-for-public-files)

So yes you would need another service for this goal.

There are thousands of different possibilities. Just a cheap one: install WordPress and install one of the "download" plugins: that will give you statistics on how many people downloaded a certain item (e.g. http://wordpress.org/plugins/download-manager/)

The easiest way out there is to use our app for Dropbox. Tracks the number of times a dropbox file was downloaded using a share link.



You can use a service providing such analytic.

For example, I use bit.ly to shorten the links. Bit.ly also provides "Stats" page that counts the number of views/downloads against time and geographic location.
