If you’ve been using Dropbox’s convenient and clean email app, Mailbox and Carousel, its Google Photos-like photo manager, there’s some bad news.

Dropbox has decided to shut down Mailbox on February 26, 2016, and Carousel a month later.

The move comes amid troubling news for Dropbox, which is struggling to justify its $10 billion evaluation amid mounting scrutiny from board members, reports TechCrunch. It is also locked in an intense fight with Google Drive to stay in the market.

Failing to find more users, Dropbox is expected to move its focus to productivity applications such as Paper, which lets users collaborate on documents in real-time.
