Re: file size

Is there a filesize limitation for individual files uploaded to Dropbox?

Hi there,

Need help, if I use Dropbox. I have a 293GB file, it is a backup image that I want to save to the dropbox. Can I do it.

I have been reading and what I have seen is that the biggest file size is 200GB.

What do I do

Regards

Brian

Dropbox has no limit on file sizes, BUT, only if uploaded via the desktop software from www.dropbox.com/downloading. Also, it will take AGES to upload that (and download again if needed!)

The limit is more on file numbers or individual files via the website upload option.

Sorry, but this is a related question. So Dropbox has no limit on file sizes only if uploaded via the desktop app or the mobile app.

Here is my question. If you upload files to the Dropbox.com(website), the limit size is 50GB per file. Is this applied for all the users no matter what their plan is?

Thanks.

Yes it is the same regardless of plan - well, that is assuming you have enough free space to upload.
