Deleting it simply moves it to the trash where collaborators may still access the file. If, however, you click the "trash" link and "delete forever" on the item in question, it is no longer accessible by collaborators.

On Linux, the Dropbox client is subject to a default system limit on the number of directories it can monitor for changes. There is a warning regarding this, along the lines of: Unable to monitor filesystem Please run: echo 100000 | sudo tee /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches and restart Dropbox to correct the problem. This comes up often in ...

They haven't outright banned it so I think it's safe to say that you are allowed to host websites on Dropbox. There is a wiki page, "Hosting Websites with Dropbox", (that includes information that was hosted on the official Dropbox wiki section) about how you could set it up via CNAME pointing. If you are worried about bandwidth, see Arash F. post on the ...

This is how I get around it Create a new windows account Create a shortcut to DropBox on your desktop Hold shift and Right click the shortcut and click Run As Different User Type YourPcName\YourNewAccount for UserName and your password A new DropBox window will open up now and ask for your email/password. You should now have two dropboxes in your task bar.

One possibility is that the other "Anonymous" visitors are actually you visiting the page multiple times. Since it does not require authentication, it typically leaves people as anonymous until they do something that identifies them.

Yes, it is possible. First, change the directory permission to public in which your mp3 files reside. Copy the folder ID, that will be at the end of URL when you are inside the directory. It will be something like this 0C2QKl-TsV6cVTE7wbWNOelRiRlk Next you can access the mp3 files using hosted mode: https://googledrive.com/host/0C2QKl-...

It is not possible to upload files other than image and video files to Blogger. You would have to use other file sharing websites like Dropbox to share such files. Also, your Google Drive link works perfectly fine, feel free to use that link to share the same file with other people.

You can now host static Web applications using the static web app console that was released with dropbox.js. The dropbox.js release announcement has a bit more detail, and points to a sample application.

Don't know if this still helps anybody, but this can be done. With an “anybody with the link can view the file” link: prefix the file ID with uc?id= and append it with &export=download So it would look like this: https://docs.google.com/uc?id=FILE-ID&export=download

After multiple tries I was still getting the "unable to monitor filesystem" error. I finally figured out why: 100,857 Files, 15,009 Folders I had to bump my max_user_watches to a higher number.

As of May 2017, the Public folder has been converted to a standard, private folder (this conversion happened for Dropbox Basic users on March 15, 2017). The in-browser rendering of HTML files has also been/is being discontinued (see quoted paragraphs below for the exact dates). According to the pinned answer on this question, shared HTML files will be ...

Yes. Open the document then click the blue "Share" button at the top. It will open a dialog that lists who the document is shared with and lets you share with more people. If you click the "Advanced" link in this dialog, it will open a larger dialog that gives more details and controls on who you're sharing the document with and what permissions they each ...

No it is not possible. Google does not have the tools for and refer to 3rd party scripts. They confirmed to me that they do not offer this much needed admin functionality to better manage permissions. In our case our Google Drive has become unmanageable now.

As the screenshot shows a background we could say that the folders are included in a Team Drive, also the link include in the question refers to a learning article about Team Drives. Unfortunately, at this time it's not possible to share folders included in a Team Drive but you could add the users you want to share the folder to the Team Drive Reference ...

The assistant should change the owner to you before they leave. Otherwise, you're stuck with the process you've found. Obviously, in G Suite the administrator would be able to take care of all of this.

The simplest solution I can think of is to set both of their Share settings to "View" or "Comment". This will prevent either from editing the document. But my guess is that you are looking for something more like the restricting of "adding" or "removing" by a valid editor. This is also changeable in the "Share Setting" but affects all those the document is ...

If you're asking how to have a folder synchronized without having the location of the folder within your Google Drive folder, you can do so with Symlinks. The program mentioned in that article, Link Shell Extension, is a great way to do this if you're either uncomfortable with the command line, or if you're doing most of your folder operations in explorer.

The whole purpose of the site is to get people to download programs bundled with adware/spyware/malware etc. There are plenty of user submitted ratings of the site on Web of Trust: http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/lp.ilivid.com I would think they got their impressive Alexa ranking through browser exploits from people that downloaded files from their site. ...

I found out that you can do this with Google Docs, using File → Publish to the Web.

If you share an MP3 by link, you obtain a link like this https://drive.google.com/file/d/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/view?usp=sharing where XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is the ID of your MP3 file. Then you can obtain a direct link to this audio by http://docs.google.com/uc?export=open&id=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX In particular you can use <audio controls> <...

This example works: <audio controls=""> <source src="http://docs.google.com/uc?export=open&amp;id=1uZd99P8_xWM3fYsoSl4xHa8md2MWHa68" type="audio/mp3"></source> Your browser does not support HTML5 audio <br /> </audio>

I would try the following: Create a new folder in your Google Drive to move all your shared items into. Go to "Shared with Me" and add all the shared items from there to the new folder in your drive. Perform an export through Takeout and this should include the new folder you just made with all the shared items you added to it. When I tested this ...

You should use the Upload new version feature rather than deleting/unsharing and sharing again. (You can delete earlier versions later.) Steps On your computer, go to drive.google.com. Right click on the file you want to replace. Click Manage versions. Click Upload new version. Select the new file on your computer. After the upload finished, open the ...

Dropbox perhaps? It uses a desktop application, sure, but it makes the process easy and probably quite pain-free.

Well, if they don’t have access to the 100GB Dropbox account, how could they upload anything to it? As for sharing the files, you could use Google Drive. See the How to share man page for instructions. Also, if you need this for a limited period of time and you don’t want/like Google Drive, you could use the free trial option of YouSendIt.

Coming directly from the FAQ, yes, you are able to - using a secret link. Q: Can I share folders with contacts who do not use Wuala? A: Yes, of course. Simply create a secret link and send it to your contact.

I dont think this is possibly in Dropbox although it is on the wishlist for Dropbox (https://www.dropbox.com/votebox/14/analytics-statistics-for-public-files) So yes you would need another service for this goal. There are thousands of different possibilities. Just a cheap one: install WordPress and install one of the "download" plugins: that will give you ...

For Google drive files (docs, sheets, slides etc.) you can select file>Published to the web... This will create a PUBLIC dynamically linked url that can be directly shared on facebook etc. or embedded. Note as this is dynamic if you change the file these changes will also be posted to the internet. For other files in Google drive you need to go to the ...

The information that you are giving us is the link to the folder - not the link to the individual files within that folder. That is why "anyone with the link" can get to the folder, but cannot get to items witin it, ie because they do not have the links to the items in the folder. Arguably this is a silly distinction: if you want "anyone with the link" to ...
