Dropbox offers easy ways to share files or folders. Shared folders are ideal for groups of people who work on the same files together. When you create a shared folder and add other people to it, its files will appear in their Dropbox just as they do in yours. Any member of the folder can add, delete, or edit files within that folder.
You can also invite people to folders from the Sharing page. To create a new shared folder, click the New shared folder button at the top of the page. To invite more people to an existing shared folder, find it in the list and click its Options link.
You can share a folder right from your computer if you've installed the Dropbox desktop application.
Once someone accepts your invitation, the folder will appear in the person's Dropbox account.
See a video tutorial on how you can use shared folders to collaborate within your team.
You should only use shared folders and public folders for files that you have the legal right to share with others (for example, documents, software, music, and videos that you personally created). You do not have the right to share files unless you own the copyright in them or have been given permission by the copyright owner to share them. Purchasing or legally acquiring video, music, or software does not give you the right to share that material with third parties over the Internet.
If you have any doubts about whether you have the legal right to share certain files, you should not share them. By using the shared folder or public folder features you represent that files placed in those folders do not violate Dropbox’s Terms of Service and that you own all copyrights to them or have been given permission by the copyright owner to share them. Dropbox has adopted a policy of terminating the accounts of users who repeatedly infringe copyright or whose accounts are subject to multiple infringement allegations. If you repeatedly place files in shared folders or public folders that infringe others’ copyrights, your account will be terminated.
