Invite Users to Send You Files via Dropbox, Even if They Don’t Have a Dropbox Account

I use Dropbox regularly to store some of my files, but also to share files with others. There’s a feature that I didn’t know about, whereby you can invite someone to send a file to your Dropbox folder, but they don’t need a Dropbox account. Jason Snell explains how to do this.

There are two scenarios. One is to have someone who doesn’t have a Dropbox account send you a file. This feature allows you to invite someone to send you a file, and you don’t have to share a folder with them. The second is for people who do have Dropbox accounts, but don’t have enough storage for the shared folder. When you share a folder with someone, the total size of that folder counts against the other person’s limit.

This is a great feature in Dropbox, one that I’ll find very useful.

Note: If you don’t have a Dropbox account, you can get a 2 GB account for free, including an additional free 500 MB if you use this link.
