Ability to upload large files

Ability to upload large files

It would be great if you could add the ability to upload large files via browser or the app, that are not currently present in the Dropbox locally.

In some situations, I have files on my external drive that are too large for the internal drive which hosts the dropbox. Currently, there is no way to upload these files to my Dropbox.

Hey there, @Timecop, thanks for reaching out. 

I’ll be happy to pass your suggestion on to our team for their awareness. 

Did you know that our desktop app gives you the ability to move your Dropbox folder to another drive? Depending on the size of your files, this may help, although the drive would need to be connected and available to our app at all times.

I’d suggest trying this to see if it works for you, and if it doesn’t, you can always move the Dropbox folder if you want to. 

Cheers!
