Stress-free file sharing

Share files securely and effortlessly

Share any file or folder easily, with anyone

Sharing with Dropbox is quick and simple. With just a link, you can send anything—from photos and videos to zipped folders and large CAD files—with anyone, even if they don’t have a Dropbox account. Share from anywhere, using your phone, tablet, or computer.

And unlike email attachments, you don’t have to worry about file size limits—share files as large as your storage quota (2 GB and up). You can even pull together multiple project files into a tailor-made presentation—complete with your logo and graphics—with Dropbox Showcase.

Get real-time updates on shared files

Find out exactly when someone has made changes to a file. You’ll immediately see who’s added, edited, deleted, renamed, or moved files. Any changes made to a shared file will be automatically updated and synced for all recipients. And showcases let you track who views, downloads, and comments on the work you share.

Organize shared folders

Dropbox is a great place to help teams organize their files in one central location. It’s easy for team members to see where everything is, and which files are the most recent—and ready to work with.

  • Shared folders: Working on a file-heavy project with several people? Simply invite people to a shared folder. Each invitee will have access to the folder’s subfolders and files. And any edits you make within the folder will be immediately synced to other members, for quick and easy collaboration. 
  • Groups: Easily share materials with relevant parties by creating a group, adding a list of members, and inviting the group to shared folders.

Control what you share

  • Manage folder permissions: Ensure secure folder sharing with multiple folder permissions. Choose if you want to give recipients editing or view-only access to your folder.
  • Sharing controls: Sending a file as an email attachment can put your data’s security at risk. With Dropbox, you can share a link to a file or folder that is limited to view-only access. Plus, you can make a link only accessible via password, set a link expiration date, and disable downloads. 
  • Granular folder permissions: Share a specific subfolder without giving access to the folder it lives within. Give your vendors access to just one “Final Images” subfolder, for example, located inside your larger “Graphic Design” folder.
