Hey @Davebm20, they can upload 450 GB, however, it will have to be done in batches of maximum 50 GB.

 

I hope this helps.

Hey @Davebm20, thanks for joining our Community and sorry to hear you're having issues with this. 

 

It sounds like you're referring to a file request and not a shared folder. If that's true, note that users on the Dropbox Professional, Standard, Advanced, and Enterprise plans can accept files up to 50 GB in size which is the limit for uploads through the website anyhow. 

 

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any questions.
