How to share large files - Dropbox service


This service for sharing large files with and from Lincoln staff and students, is being retired with effect from 1 November 2017.


There are a few reasons for this, however the main reason is that the platform on which this service relies is out of date, no longer secure and all staff & students have a more capable and personal service available courtesy of Microsoft’s OneDrive for Business. OneDrive for Business can share both individual files and folders with subfolders PLUS you can allow others to edit the files you’ve shared!
