Are there any restriction/limits to use dropbox as a means to send clients files?

Explorer | Level 4

My company has registered for a standard business account and we are using the .Net SDK to upload photos into individual folders which we then send a link to the users to download them as a zip file.

 

My questions are;

Are we allowed to do file sharing like this? The plan we have are 3TB, so does that mean that as long as we keep the content size within 3TB, we can upload as many photos and share them to as many users as we like?

For example: we uploaded 300 folders of photos. Each folders consist of maybe 15mb size of photos. These folders are then shared as zip via the .Net SDK called "DownloadZipAsync" to users. 

Will there be any download limits or bandwidth usage?

 

Is there a limit to the amount of folders we can create? As the business grow, we might eventually hit thousands or more users. For every user, we will have to create a folder and then upload their photos into it and then share the link to the folder as zip file download.

Hello @frphotos, Currently there is a daily bandwidth limit of 200 GB for a business user, that is the total amount of traffic that all of your links and file requests combined can generate. More info - https:confused face:/www.dropbox.com/help/security/banned-links

What about the number of folders we can create? Are they unlimited or is there a limit of folders we can create?

As long as you are below your storage quota, number of folder should not be an issue; you can create as many as you want. However, note that if you are using Desktop app for syncing, a huge number of files and folders may have degraded performance - https:confused face:/www.dropbox.com/help/space/file-storage-limit
