    When the file upload field is used in a form, where are the uploads stored? We have our form integrated with DropBox, so the document is stored in the appropriate folder.

    Is it stored somewhere else accessible through the Jotform site, etc.?

    Also, is it possible to have any uploaded documents on the form sent via the notification e-mail as well?

    Uploads are securely stored in our servers and they can be accessed whenever you login to your Jotform account.

    However, if you integrate the form with Dropbox, a copy of the file is forwarded to your dropbox folder.

    And yes, email notification comes with a link to the file stored into our servers

    I hope this clears your doubts
