FAQs about uploading to a file request

Do file requests have a deadline?

If you received a file request invitation in your inbox, the email includes details on whether there’s a deadline to upload your files. Here’s what you should know about deadlines:

  • The time and date of the deadline are in the file requester’s time zone
  • You’ll receive one reminder email to upload before the deadline
  • If you forward the file request invitation to someone not originally invited by the creator of the file request, they will not receive a reminder email
  • You won’t receive an email update if the file request creator changes the deadline
  • If the person requesting files allows late submissions any files uploaded after the deadline will be accepted, but marked as late

Why didn’t I receive a file request I was expecting?

If you're expecting a file request invitation but didn't receive one, try the following:

  • Check to see if the file request invitation went to your spam folder
  • Clarify your email address with the file requester
  • Add [email protected] to your email contacts and ask the file requester to resend your invitation
  • If the above steps do not resolve the issue, please contact your email provider, or ask the requester to copy the link to their request and send that to you instead.

Error: Please upload files under 2 GB.

If the file request was created by a Dropbox Basic, Plus, or Family user, you can only upload files up to 2 GB. For files larger than 2 GB, consider using a shared link.

Note: File requests created by Dropbox Business team members or Professional users can accept files up to 50 GB in size.

Ask the file requester to check how much space they have in their Dropbox account.
