    I thought I had it all figured out. Open a dropbox account for my client (corporate printer) and create a "Upload File" Jotform that puts the files in his dropbox account. DONE.

    BUT now I see that I can also have jotform ftp the files to his server (via "send a file"). 

    Are there pros and cons to using DropBox vs FTP? 

    or is that too subject an answer?

    thanks in advance

    Dropbox imposes a 300MB limit for their users while FTP depends on your hosting space. Both follows the 1GB maximum file attachment limit.

    But because uploaded files are saved on our servers first before being delivered to Dropbox or FTP, there is no way to have a file larger than 100MB (for FREE accounts) to get uploaded.
