One of the easiest ways to upload files to Dropbox is with the Dropbox website. Simply sign in to dropbox.com, and then drag-and-drop files from your computer. 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.
