I have a dropbox icon on my task bar. It opens the files in my computer and does not have an option to launch to the web. I guess the green check on the file means that it already sync to my account. Recently i upgraded to 2TB storage. My C drive has 1 TB capacity. Should I change to have my files in dropbox only and not in my computer? If so, what do I need to do? Thank you.

Thanks for the info on dropbox. Can you tell me how to delete a file so that what I shared with people would be removed? I right clicked on "Delete" and it tells me "Deletion Failed". Has anyone had this problem? We are using dropbox for meeting agendas that would containe financials and would like the file deleted after the meeting.

As usual when I watch any of these f****** stupid videos they are just a waste of time that's all you are doing is wasting people's time with dribbling lots of useless s*** that has nothing to do with anything if you're going to make a video tell people something f****** that makes f****** sense

Is there like a pot luck website out there where everyone drops files in but they can also take out whatever they want when ever they want?

This definitely was not everything you need to know. I have a file that someone sent me that I can't view. It is in my dropbox but I have to download it every time. No one seems to have a solution.

Cloud? Might as well just tell everyone where to get it because someone already has access to it. People are too trusting in technology. I hang my laundered money on the clothesline.

CAN THEY SEE ONLY THE FOLDER LINK I SEND THEM OR NOT..DROPBOX DOESNT ANSWER THIS AND NEITHER DO YOU way too much rambling on here ..wow ...and just hear a different person rambling on and on and on....this video should walk you through what dropbox does..the different between a file , folder etc..not your opinion on all the cool features ..i didn't learn one thing watching your video...no offense..but you assume way way too much in your video man

watch out if you leave your drop box open, if you get a virus and your dropbox is open it will infect your drop box files.  only way to avoid is to keep drop box closed and not left open 24/7.

Question : K so I'm LEEEEANING (like almost there) towards Google Drive consequential to the fact all my uploaded videos can be viewed online regardless of duration (unlike Amazons Cloud Service which limits video files to 20 minutes); k so my question is seeing as this is my PRIMARY (only) CONSIDERATION re a platform (being able to watch in totality uploaded video files) what platform would you recommend? OneDrive? SYNC? Google Drive? Amazon Cloud Service? DropBox? Am I missing any cloud data service providers?

HI, does this mean I must have 2 copies of the same file on my computer like 1) in a folder named something that makes it easy to find and 2) copies paste latest versions in a Dropbox folder? ... or can / should I put only 1 copy of the folder in DropBox and work on them from there with no other copies? Thanks in advance for clarifying.

Kristin Carlock (2 years ago)
Thank you for your informative video! I purchased the additional storage to upload my photos from my Macbook Air (memory issues). While I appreciate the additional backup security and the ability to share, may I clarify that uploading my photos to Dropbox does take up additional space on my hard drive? I have also uploaded my photos to an external disk drive and I still have them in my Photos App on my Mac, so I don't think I have the hard drive space to also have them on Dropbox. Could that be possible?
Kristin Carlock (2 years ago)
Wow! How do I do that? Are you making a Tube video on that piece? I am also missing my shortcut to dropbox on my computer. How do I put that back on?

Jim Fornelli (2 years ago)
Really enjoying your videos on dropbox. I recently upgraded to a paid account, and use a macbook air (minimal storage of course). I've found that whenever I create a document or want to save a PDF for example, I am saving direct to dropbox ("save as"). I've found myself never saving to my Documents folder on the hard drive. Is there anything wrong with this process of saving everything direct to Dropbox. There seems to be a continue emphasis of the traditional method of saving items to your hard drive, and having dropbox as the backup tool. I like the available on any device feature for quick access to all my files. Thanks!

@dottotech +dottotech hi, thanks for your video.. but i am starting to F**KING HATE dropbox! they have NOOOOOOOO client support!! I am a paid client.. and I have no way to contacThese BLOODY assholes!! So I'll disturb you with my questions.. if you could be kind enough to answer them ill appreciate.. thank you: ------------------- question ONE---------------------- SITUATION: 1° so i got a free account... jusTo see how DB works... let'Say it was: *[email protected]* I installed the desktop version of the app on my computer and signed in athe top of my screen it shows a little box.. 2° then i decided to get a paid version which gave me more space but i used an other email: *[email protected]* 3° now i wanted to sign out of the *[email protected]* but it's impossible! When i click the box icon it gives me various options... one of them being *quit dropbox* but i have none which allows me to SIMPLY sign out of this mail & signin with my other mail: *[email protected]* Could you please tell me how i can sign out of it? I already tried uninstalling the desktop dropbox app & reintstalling it... but by magic it automatically opens up the *[email protected]* it's DRIVING me NUTS! ------------------- question TWO---------------------- I wanTo use DB as an online hard-drive... i want my files to be there only so i can delete them from my computer this way i have more space on my lap top How do i do it?? because they are synchronised does that mean if i delete my file on my computer it will delete my file online too automatically? ------------------- question THREE---------------------- I dont want any of my files to be sycronisied automatically or just a few folders i select.. is that possible?

I have Bible Studies that I have taught and saved to a file on my iPhone (Android) with Free WavePad. I am having a hard time transferring them from my iPhone to my computer so that I can edit and put them in my Sound Cloud account. I did it one time, but can't get it to do it again. I thought the Drop Box app on my phone would help me with that, but it hasn't. Can you help a brother out on this one? Thank you! gary
dottotech (2 years ago)
+Gary Freeman Hey Gary, I am not sure what the issues are, Apple's lack of open file structure can be a challenge sometimes. I would play with export settings. Sorry I can't be more specific.

Hi SteveI have had Dropox for 3 years and a paying customer for 2 years. I am not using it to it's potential, this I know, especially after watching this video which prompted me to ask this silly question, wish I am sure I know the answer to but haven't slept in two days LOL ok...I just have a a very very old desktop which I have not put dropbox on, but my Laptop and phone are synced for photos from my phone to my laptop. My question is I have many many photos on this laptop that I had to copy from desktop as I was afraid it was going to crash (I did this with an external hardrive about 6 years ago) anyhow can I move these photos on my laptop to JUST DROPBOX.COM I don't want them taking up space on my phone or if i get brave and TRY to put it on  my still working old desktop which actually ports my router. I hope I made sense, as I have developed some awful stress induced insomnia ugh??

Brenda Kyle (3 years ago)
Is there a setting to prevent Dropbox from auto downloading and duplicate downloading my photos? (on free account) The 1st time I installed it, it filled up very fast. I uninstalled it from my laptop. Now I have to reinstall for InstaAcademy and to manage multiple Instagram accounts/content. When I add personal photos from my camera or phone, I don't want them to automatically go to Dropbox. I want to import them to my laptop directly (optionally add what I want to Dropbox later). Does Google Drive operate the same way? Will I need both to maintain and manage content between myself and clients or can I pick one?
dottotech (3 years ago)
+Brenda Kyle I had the same issue, and it took several attempts to disable the feature once I had it installed. My best advice is do it again.....sorry I can't help more!
Tannis Power (3 years ago)
I have a question. After listening to a few of your 'Fantabulously' clear understanding YouTube videos on 'Dropbox, I'd like to know that if I upload a PowerPoint photo album presentation with music, will it upload all as one photo album & will the people I share it with be able to view it as one complete photo album? My problem is that with some other similar programs, the audio file uploads as a completely different folder & can not be viewed as a complete presentation.
dottotech (3 years ago)
+Tannis Power I have not used PowerPoint in a while but I remember that issue, One way may be to upload the presentation and audio file into the DB folder, open it there and make sure the audio link works in that folder.

I just got a new hard drive.  I installed Dropbox and have my scanner to save automatically to a specific file in my Dropbox...however, when I go to find these files from my phone (android) the files aren't there!  Is that because I am not saving the file 'first' to a file on my hard drive?
dottotech (3 years ago)
+Patrick Fetzer It should be there, sometimes it takes a while to sync, you should have the files on your drive as well.....is there a reason you don't want them local and in the cloud?

i got a map with files that is around 8gb that a friend wanna get so we use the same files and setup as the other one does so does drop box allow to updload a map with that big size ( its around 200 zip files in it ) and then allow him to down low the entire map right away while both use free accounts?? or is there any other sites / programs that allow that amount of size / many files? as i was reading on another kind of way and they allowed alot of up load and so on for free but if i would use that other site and them my friend was going to download then he had to do it with 1 file at the time and top 200mb per file and i got files that are over 200 mb
ian g marshall (3 years ago)
hello Steve from France. Your presence via all your tutos is priceless. Infinite thanks and respect. re: dropbox what about consequences of installing-using dropbox? here's one: (I'm using a mac) I used to be able to "store to dsktop" aka "locally" a  screenshot (cmd+shift+4 or 3) which is a logical process. Slick dropbox now takes command...it nicks my screenshot and sends it to my account / cloud; and it doesn't ask my opinion. So, as I'm getting the hang of dropbox thanks to your generous tutoring, I am also monitoring the tech incidents. All the best,  IGM

One of the most important things regarding your privacy remained untold in this video: All files you put onto your Dropbox folder will be transmitted to the Dropbox servers where they're being stored then, that means that you don't know who is really able to access it. Putting your private data onto a cloud is dangerous!
dottotech (3 years ago)
+Roman Scharkov Fair point, thanks for bringing it up, as you correctly point out it applies to all cloud services.

hmmm, I am still confused after reading about dropbox for an hour. I keep hearing that everything in your dropbox folder syncs to all your devices, but how can this work?  Let's say I want to keep a backup of my photos for security reason (not for accessing them from other devices).  I have a local folder on computer A in my office with 400GB of pics, I have a dropbox pro account with 1 TB of storage, so no problem, I move my pic folder and they sync to dropbox in the cloud, I now have a backup, cool. But now I go to computer B in my studio where I also have dropbox installed (same dropbox account), but I don't want these 400GB of pics sync locally to computer B! I also have a phone that 16GB of storage, it can't sync that amount of pics on my phone. I don't understand the syncing usage model across various devices when these devices might not have the same storage capacity as the original computer.
