Managing file requests

You can collect files from anyone, anytime, using Dropbox file requests, even if they don’t have a Dropbox account. All files collected with a file request will take up space in your Dropbox account. When you've finished receiving the files you need, or if you're running low on space, you can easily close a file request at any time. Learn how to turn off a file request in this quick video.

Manage your file requests

In a previous video, we showed you how you can easily collect files from others using file requests.

When you have all the files you need, you can close the request.

To do so, sign in to and click “Files” on the left side panel. Choose “File requests”.

Click the ellipsis next to the file request that you want to close and click “Edit.”

Then click, “Close request”.

You can view all your closed requests under the Closed requests tab near the top of the screen.
