I need to have 100 users submit about a 1GB each through a form linked to a Dropbox acc. Does Jotform actually host that data or is it forwarded?

    Is the data forwarded straigt to Dropbox? If not, can I have multiple users access the uploaded data from Jotform directly? 

    I'd like to avoid having the data hosted at both Jotform and Dropbox.

    Through my expereince, it is hosted by Jotform, it simply is copied to Dropbox. if your dropbox hits it's limits the form will simply stop copying it to there, however the attachment is still accessible from the form submission viewer

    If the Jotform space is filled will it still sync to Dropbox? I'm concerned about going over the space limitations.

    What newworksfestival has explained to you is correct. Attachments are hosted into our servers and if you integrate the form to dropbox a copy of the actual file will be sent to it, but once your dropbox account reaches the limit , it will stop.  But you will be able to access your attachemnt from your Jotform account

    If Jotform space is filled , the form will get disabled, so it will not sync to dropbox unless it is active.
