Shared vs. private folders

By default, anything you store in your Dropbox account is private—only you can access it. However, you can use shared folders to collaborate with others on the stuff in your Dropbox account. Only people you invite can access your shared folders.

Private folders

Private folders work just like any other folder on your hard drive. Move, copy, and rename the folders and its contents just like you would any other folder. As long as the folder is in the Dropbox folder, and Dropbox is running, everything in it will be synced online and to your other computers.

Private folders can't be accessed publicly. Everything in these folders is as secure as any other file on your hard drive and accessible via dropbox.com only if you're logged in. Private folders can become shared folders, and you can share files in a private folder using shared links.

Shared folders

只有您邀請的對象可以存取共享資料夾及其內容。您可以將任何的一般資料夾設為共享資料夾,或是接受別人的邀請,加入他們的共享資料夾。當您要和其他人共享某個資料夾時,Dropbox 會提示您輸入對方的電子郵件地址。當受邀人接受了您的邀請,該共享資料夾就會出現在他們的 Dropbox 帳戶裡,就跟您的資料夾一模一樣。不論這個資料夾有何變動,都會同步反映在所有成員的共享資料夾中。透過這種方式,您就能輕鬆與其他人合作進行某個專案或共享任何檔案。

You can prevent other members of your shared folders from adding, editing, or deleting files by setting view-only permissions.

Windows and Mac only

Use the Dropbox badge to see if your file is in a shared folder. Clicking on the Dropbox badge opens a pop-out window where you can see the number of people sharing the file with you.

Click on Shared Folder Settings in the Badge to go to dropbox.com. On dropbox.com, you can view the names of those you share the folder and file with.

Shared links

Unlike shared folders, linked files and folders are read-only, meaning users can view and download them, but can't change their contents.

Shared links are unique to your account, and while it's highly unlikely that people could ever guess the link, the links themselves are transferable and could be viewed and downloaded by anyone with or without a Dropbox account.

資料夾的分享連結讓他人可以存取該資料夾及其內容,也包含其中的子資料夾和該子資料夾中的檔案。

On dropbox.com, you can easily see which files and folders you've shared a link to in the past: a link icon will appear under the Shared with column.

Dropbox Professional 與 Dropbox Business 使用者

You can control who has access to your shared links and for how long by setting passwords and expirations.

使用第三方應用程式存取

Some third party apps with Dropbox integration will ask for permission to access your Dropbox account. To grant access, you'll need to log in to your Dropbox account and explicitly click the Authorize button when prompted. You can visit the Apps linked section of your account settings to review the apps you've granted permission to and revoke access at your discretion.
