Can I let a colleague send a file to my Dropbox account?

New member | Level 2

Hi, I am new with dropbox and I have a question. A colleague is trying to send me a file that is too big to be sent by email. Can I create a folder for my colleague to drop the file without having to give him my username and password? If so, how do I do this? 

Thanks in advance

Re: Sharing a folder

Hi there, you could easily create a file request, and they can upload it there which will appear in your Dropbox account.
They don’t require a Dropbox account to do this, which would be ideal for your situation.
Let me know if you need any further assistance!
