Or, if you prefer, you can select “Upload files” to choose a file. Note that there’s a 50 GB file size limit when uploading through the website. If you have a bigger file, use the Dropbox desktop app instead.

You can also make files available or folders available for offline viewing on your mobile device. Dropbox lets you work anywhere, anytime, without missing a beat.
