Dropbox Service

Posted onby admin

Dropbox Business has enabled us to push that data quickly, efficiently, and reliably. And I’m honestly not quite sure how we did it before. Very rarely does somebody bring up a service other than Dropbox. Dropbox is a service that keeps your files safe, synced, and easy to share. Connect to Dropbox to manage your files. You can perform various actions such as upload, update, get, and delete files in Dropbox.

This web page will allow you to drop-off (upload) one or more files for a University of Delaware user. The recipient will receive an automated email containing the information you enter below and instructions for downloading the file. Your IP address will be logged and sent to the recipient, as well, for identity confirmation purposes.

Files uploaded to the Dropbox are not scanned for viruses. Exercise the same degree of caution as you would with any other file you download. Users are also expected to encrypt any files containing sensitive information (e.g. personally identifiable information, PII) before sending them via the Dropbox! See this page for information on encryption.
If you are attaching a file containing the dropoff recipients' addresses, the file should be:
  • A plain text file with a single email address per line
  • A spreadsheet in CSV format (e.g. exported by Excel)
With the Dropbox service, the UConn community can exchange large files (up to 10 GB). At least one person, either the sender or the receiver, must be from UConn. Please note: Dropbox should not be used to transmit sensitive University data.
