Dropbox won't start
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

When launched, Dropbox reports this error and shuts itself down:

"Couldn't start Dropbox.
This is usually because of a permissions error. Storing your home folder on a network share can also cause an error.

Please contact Dropbox support with the following info for help: /tmp/dropbox_error4hcioi.txt "

Code inside dropbox_error4hcioi.txt is below. Tried to search on the web for possible solutions, but none of them work.

Would appreciate some help here.

Disk full? ~/ or /tmp?

Thanks for pointing at this, Justin: my system disk is indeed full. I've ordered a bigger disk and will report here if this solves the problem or not.
