We all have faced the same problem of file sharing. When we have to share large sized data files using Whatsapp, Gmail or on any other media. Most of them have an upload limit of MBs. To solve this problem we can use a third party service to store files which we want to share. In this tutorial we are using Dropbox.

Follow the guide to upload and share big fat files using Dropbox:



  • First, create a New Folder where you can put your files. Name the folder.

Create folder in dropbox

  • You can Upload or Drag and Drop your files in the created folder.

    What if even dropbox space (2GB) is not enough and you run out of it?
    There are plenty of options which we can use such as
    linking your dropbox with facebook(125 mb)
    follow on twitter and tweet about dropbox (500 mb)
    Use Dropbox’s Carousel App ( 3GB)
    Refer to friennds (500 mb each and upto 16 GB)
