Daily File Request Limits?

Daily File Request Limits?

Explorer | Level 4

Hey all!

I hope everyone’s doing well. I had a quick question about if there’s a limit to the amount of file requests I can create in a day.

Thanks,
Tanush

Hi @cascadeCommons, thanks for messaging the Community!

 

Currently, there isn't a daily limit on the number of file requests you can create, however, there is a daily bandwidth limit for shared links and file requests, which can be found here.

 

Hope this helps to clarify matters!

Hey Jay,

Thanks for the quick reply! I see that the bandwidth limit for Dropbox Professional users is 200 GB. Is bandwidth usage calculated by the size of the files uploaded? For example, if someone uploads a 1 GB file via a file request, does that count towards 1/200 of my bandwidth?

Thanks!

That's correct, however, bear in mind that failed uploads also count, so if they try to upload a file and then fail, the failed upload also counts towards your bandwidth limit.
