Why share with Dropbox?

Why share with Dropbox?

Dropbox makes it easy to share and collaborate on folders and files without breaking your flow, while also keeping everything up-to-date, safe, and secure.

Share with ease

Sharing with Dropbox makes collaboration easy.

Sharing with others

No matter how you get work done, you’re covered with collaborative folders and shared links. Each method has its own distinct advantages, depending on what you want to do.

Shared links

You can share links with friends and colleagues who don’t have a Dropbox account without having to worry about file size limits. They can still view and decide whether to download the document, but can’t edit it.

Give the right people the right type of access

With Dropbox, you decide who accesses your content and when.

Edit access in a shared folder

Want someone to help edit the documents you’re working on? Share the folder with edit access. Edit access allows for easy collaboration between people. You can even watch others edit the files and have the edits sync immediately. Anyone with edit access can alter, add, and delete files in your folder.

View-only access with shared files or links

Don’t want to let someone edit? Use shared links instead. Even though the recipient of a shared link won’t be able to edit, the link will always show changes and the most up-to-date version.

Sleep easy knowing we've got your back

Sharing files and collaborating with your team is great, but sometimes giving other people access to your documents means there are too many cooks in the kitchen, and accidents can happen.

With Dropbox, you don’t have to worry about losing a file or accidentally deleting important folders. Dropbox can help you restore deleted files and recover previous versions of your files. So, if one of your coworkers deleted the big presentation due this afternoon instead of editing it, Dropbox can help get it back.
