How do I share files using DropBox?

Sending small files over email works great but what happens when you have a large file (over 20 MB) you want to share with us? The best way is to use a cloud storage service and share the files using that service. This works much better than sending the actual file because instead of send us the 20 MB file, you’ll only be sending us a link to download the 20 MB file.

IMPORTANT: Please DO NOT click the SHARE link! There is a much easier way to send files!

Assuming you have a Dropbox account and the large file is in your Dropbox account, follow these steps:

If you are using the Dropbox.com website:

  1. Go to https://www.dropbox.com/
  2. Sign in to your account
  3. Navigate to the file in Dropbox
  4. Move your mouse over the file and click the little link icon (do NOT click the Share icon), it looks like this:
  5. That will copy the Dropbox link to your clipboard
  6. Email us the link

If you are using the Dropbox application on your computer:

  1. Open the Dropbox folder on your computer
  2. Navigate to the file in Dropbox
  3. Move your mouse over the file, right click and select the Copy Dropbox Link option, it looks like this:
  4. That will copy the Dropbox link to your clipboard
  5. Email us the link

NOTE: if you have multiple files you want to send us simply create a folder, put all the files into that folder and then follow the above steps to get the link for that folder.
