Why is it when someone uploads a folder on Dropbox and than it syncs to numerous computers it kills be bandwidth? It sucks it up so much that I can't even get my firewalls login page until the uploads and downloads are done.

I get the concept if someone uploads a 10gb file and than goes to five people it becomes a 50 gig download how can I limit the upload and download in the network so it does not saturate it to a crawl?
