How can I share files with others using a Dropbox Basic account?

I have gathered multiple files for my team. Can the 9 members of my team access these files while still using DB Std? And if so, how.

Hey there @Tom4707,
 
So I believe you’re referring to a Dropbox Basic free account when you say DB Std, is that right?
 
If so, you can share these files with other Dropbox users with a shared folder. You can allow edit or view rights depending on the access the recipients need to the content. When sharing a folder with edit rights, the recipients will need to have enough space within their Dropbox account to hold the folder in their account too.  
 
If you want to share the files with others who might not have a Dropbox account, then you can use a shared link. They will be able to view and download the files with this link and don’t need to have a Dropbox account to access the link.
 
Hope this helps, let me know if you have any further or more specific questions about this - Cheers!
