    To integrate an existing form with your Dropbox folder, go to Submissions page for your form, click on Preferences icon, click on Dropbox Integration and then complete the Dropbox integration wizard.

     

    Hope this helps.

    H Keivan,

    I checked your form and I can see that the file extension exe is properly configured in the allowed file types list.

    May I ask how large is the exe file that you tried to upload? I believe you also need to adjust the Maximum file upload size to a bigger number. Currently it is set to 2MB. Kindly adjust it so that you can accept larger files. The maximum allowable is 1GB although for Free accounts, the allotted upload file size per month per account is only 100MB).

    Please try adjusting this figure and try to upload your exe file again. Thank you for using JotForm!

    Thanks for the prompt response. Sorry, I didn't realize that EXE files are also now entirely blocked in our servers. This I believe is understandable since EXE files are commonly used for illegal activities and this limitation is implemented in order to protect yourself, your private data, and your computer.

    Since compressed files like ZIP and RAR are allowed, You may therefore need to place a note in your form that when uploading EXE files, compress them into a ZIP or RAR file. In this way, your visitors will be properly informed and warned.

    We apologize for the inconvenience. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

    Hi Keivan,

    Sorry but at this time, all submissions are saved into JotForm servers. By default, your form data (submissions and uploaded files) are dumped into your JotForm account. This is always the case. The DropBox and FTP options are just add-ins that you can either configure or not. 

    Having a copy of your data in JotForm servers has its advantage. It will serve as your backup copy in case you accidentally delete the original copy of your form data.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you for your understanding and enjoy using JotForm!

    Hi Allanftd,

    Maybe this option is advantage, but I think this is better if you have this future as an optional.

    in the other side, we can use dropbox and set many locations to get a copy of files. 

    Please let me now can you solve my problem or no? 

     

    Best Regards,

    @keivan,

    By the way, the file extensions button is CaSe SenSiTiVE, so please add exe and EXE to the list of allowed file types.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using JotForm!

    Thanks for the update keivan, please try to add also Exe. Lastly, can you possibly certify that the extension name of the file you're trying to upload is exe? The reason why I'm asking this is because there are other possible extension names of executable files as listed on this page - http://pcsupport.about.com/od/tipstricks/a/execfileext.htm

    We appreciate your patience on this matter. Please update us with your findings so that we can assist you further if needed. We're very eager to find a solution for you.

    Hi Keivan,

    I shall proceed with escalating this issue with our Tier 2 Support for further checking. You will definitely hear from us if there are updates regarding your case. Our apologies again for the trouble.

    In the meantime, you may ask your customers to upload exe files as a compressed file to avoid inconvenience. It will also help to leave a note with this instruction using the Free Text (HTML) field type.

    Thank you for your patience and for using JotForm!

    Unfortunately, for security reasons we do not allow .exe file uploads. Ask your users to first zip the file and send it that way. Then, enable .zip and .rar extensions.

    Hello kievan,

    You can only add an option to integrate dropbox and/or FTP to your file submissions, but it is not possible to not do an upload to jotform's servers. the integration works as it submits a copy of the file uploads to your dropbox/FTP account. When using the file upload field, the file uploading to jotform servers is mandatory and not an optional feature.

    If you wish to have your submissions go to your own server alone, my suggestion is that you can purchase our Jotform Application Basic and you can host this on your own server, in your own privacy.  You can learn more about Jotform Application Basic on this page: http://www.interlogy.com/products/jotform/

    If you have other questions or concerns, please let us know.

    Thanks,

    Liyam
