thx for answering. Caveat: I'm not super IT litterate.
I want to share mom's 85. birthday movie within the clan without travelling around with a flash drive.
The movie is 70 mins / ca 9 GB, and the Dropbox upload dialogue box said it would take 11 hours to upload.
I suspect the bottleneck is a slow Internet connection.
So I wondered if it is possible to upload a compressed file (Zip), or using some file compression transfer service (e.g. WeTransfer)
to reduce the upload time.
thx for the tip. I'll give it a try, and report back in case I can't get it to work.
soon as I'm back from my flash drive journey 🙂
