Hello, @Revscott...

 

As you're aware, @Jane has posted a potential answer to your question.  However, I'll post this in case you're curious how the file request feature would work for your recipients.

 

If you'd like to test-drive how the File Request works, please feel free to click on this File Request Feature Test link.

 

Please don't upload large files... just create a .txt file, enter some verbiage within it... then save it to your hard drive (or... download my text document to upload).

 

You can read through this forum post for more information about the File Request feature (screenshot examples included).

 

PLEASE NOTE:  Any abuse via uploading will result with my File Request test link getting Lost in Space 

 

Also, once I logout of Dropbox for the day, I may temporarily deactivate the file request test link.  I don't want to find 10,000 files in my account when I login tomorrow (I'll reactivate if needed).
