    Hi there, 

    There is a limit of 300mb set by Dropbox:

    As a follow on to this good question & answer - is there a page on JotForm that provides straightforward side-by-side comparisons of different file upload options with benefits/limitations/delivery/storage? Given that you offer Dropbox, Filepicker.io, and the standard Jotform file upload button, it's hard to know without a ton of experimentation what might be the best choice for any given application.

    That is a good suggestion!

    Unfortuunately, it is currently not available (I have submitted it as a feature request).

    As a clarification of the options, your files always come to our servers and then get forwarded to other services such as Google drive, Dropbox, etc.

    Hope this helps and thanks for the suggestion!

    Thanks for passing the idea along, Eduardo.

    I realize attachments all start at Jotform and then get shot out to the other services. But the interfaces can be quite different (i.e. filepicker.io has a neat webcam file upload option) and each service you integrate with has various (and for average people, unknown) limitations. I recognize that JotForm doesn't have control over those services and their features, I still think a side-by-side matrix with features, benefits, limitations would be VERY helpful. Today, for example, such a guide would probably save me 2 unbillable hours at least, which I now have to spend trial-and-error testing the different options.
