    I use dropbox and it is working fine.  But I am curious, if a file is completely uploaded but the form is not completed, where was that file loaded to?  This is important to the security of the individuals uploading files.

    Files will not be submitted as well since the form isn't submitted. If the upload is done but the form is still not yet submitted, files will be temporarily stored on JotForm Servers which are securely protected and safe so nothing to worry about it. And, if the user didn't compelete the form or they simply close the browser, temporary files will be deleted. It wouldn't stay forever.

    Hope this clarifies a bit. Thanks!
