Well…as we’ve experienced till now working with many of our clients, some of them asked me how they would share a Dropbox folder and I have guided them separately via email instructions. But today I am just going to write a detail instructions for all of our clients and visitors.
What is Dropbox and how it works?
Dropbox is mainly a Microsoft Company providing online file store and sharing services worldwide. For primary user they offer 2.5 Gigabyte of space for store and share their files. And for premium users they offer 50 Gigabyte space. They have also desktop and mobile app to be updated and sync all the files cloud. Let’s see how to share a file or folder from Dropbox.
First you need to login to your Dropbox folder. If you does not have an account you can create an account going here www.dropbox.com maybe a bottom ‘sign up’ button appear.
After login, you will see a upload button like the screenshot below. Click on that and click again into Chose File button from pop-up dialogue, then select your files from local drive. So you will see the upload progress on middle of page. After complete click on done.
Then right click on that file or folder you uploaded or wants to share and click on share there you will see two options one are “invite people you collaborate…” another are “send link”. If you wants to share with specific people then you could select first option so you will be asked for an email address of the people you wants to collaborate with. Or if you want link that you will share with the people using email or other way. So the content will show to them who will have the link and click on.
Please see the screenshot below as a details reference.
I hope it is clear now that you will able to share your Dropbox File or Folder with people you wants to share with.
> Dropbox has a limit of 2.5 GB space for primary free users, so you will able to share within this size of file.
> If you are our one of client and believe that your file size bigger than 2.5 GB then you can ask us for an FTP account with unlimited space going here…
> Please don’t close the browser or tab until your finished the file upload.
Thanks for your time. Stay with us for more update. Cheers :)
