    @jotformupload,

    For Dropbox, upload size will be upto 300MB or less but this list of upload size limits by checking Dropbox's official pages. Note that the limits may change due to their policy and the numbers below may not be fully accurate.

    Please refer this guide for more information on Changing the Upload Size Limit.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks,
    Jalaludeen

    So the Free Jotform is enough for uploads to dropbox of up to 300 MB (or whatever the respective limit on dropbox is! That is great news. I was afraid I would have to buy into the bigger plan.

    Thanks a lot! Great service and even better support!

    Looks like Jalaludeen explained you the upload limit of DropBox.

    Free accounts are entitled to 100 MB upload space. All files uploaded through the form will be first saved on our server and then a copy of that will be uploaded to your DropBox account. 

    So that means if you want to upload a 200 MB file, your form and your Dropbox account will accept the file but it will make your account go OVERLIMIT and your account may get disabled.

    Should you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

    Thanks,

    Sidharth

    Well, that's a bummer.

    So I do need to buy a plan. That sucks. Hmm, I understand servers cost money but I'd have appreciated an honest answer from the beginning.

    If you create a dropbox form you get the impression 300 MB are allowed. Not a single line mentions the all important upload limit! If you want to gather pictures from your friends from a weekend an allowance of 100 MB is MUUUUCH too low.

    Guess I have to find s/th else.

    I will remeber this service, however, for its simplicity and ease of use for non size relevant issues.

    Bye.

    If you think you require more upload space, you may have to upgrade your account. Free account has 100 MB upload limits. 

    This space limit is clearly mentioned on our pricing page.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks,

    An alternative for you would be to integrate with Google Drive and delete the files into your free account before it max out the limit
