May 14, 2020 Dropbox has been around for almost 13 years and has more than 600 million users. During this time, there hasn’t been a shortage of problems. Hackers caused some of these, but they all show the. Dropbox is useful for work, too: You can put important files in your Dropbox to share with large groups, rather than dealing with the confusion and inbox mess of a large, long email thread. For these reasons, Dropbox is one of the most popular cloud-based storage systems.
This article explains how to share files and folders with Dropbox. When you share a file or folder, the recipient receives an email with a link to the file or folder.
Note: The recipient must have a Dropbox account and sign in to that account to view or edit the file or folder that was shared with them. If you want to give view-only access to someone who doesn’t have a Dropbox account, or doesn’t want to sign in to view it, you can share with a link instead.
- Integrate your apps with the content and collaboration solution trusted by more than 500 million users and 300,000 teams. Whether you’re building your business or optimizing internal workflows, the DBX Platform lets you add Dropbox features to your apps, such as file storage, sharing, previews, and search.
- Dropbox is a file hosting service operated by the American company Dropbox, Inc., headquartered in San Francisco, California, that offers cloud storage, file synchronization, personal cloud, and client software.
You can control whether people can edit, comment, or only view your files and folders, when you share them, and after you share them. Edits or comments that are made to a file or folder are updated live for everyone who they’ve been shared with.
Note: Users with individual Dropbox accounts need to explicitly add folders that you share with them to their Dropbox account. If you are a member of a Dropbox Business team, any personal folders that you share with other teammates will automatically be added to their Dropbox accounts.
