How to Upload Files to Dropbox

This feature is only available on FileZilla Pro, if you didn’t buy it yet you can buy FileZilla Pro from our Store.

Below you find a step by step guide, if you prefer you can watch our How to Upload Files to Dropbox video tutorial.

What you’ll need to upload files to Dropbox:

  • A Dropbox account
  • Your usual login details for Dropbox; a user ID (typically an email address) and password for the Dropbox account

Note: If FileZilla Pro is configured to save passwords protected by a master password (see Protect Passwords with a Master Password), you’ll only need to authenticate it for use with Dropbox once; it will save the access token for future connections.

Configuring FileZilla Pro

  1. In the menu bar, click on File › Site Manager…. See Using Site Manager for more details.
  2. Click on New Site.
  3. Select Dropbox from the Protocol drop down list.
  4. Click on Connect.
    FileZilla Pro will send an authentication request to Dropbox in an internet browser window, and Dropbox will ask you to confirm that you want FileZilla Pro to access your files.
  5. If you haven’t logged into Dropbox recently, or you’ve been logged out on the current machine, you’ll need to login before you can approve the FileZilla Pro request.
  6. Click Allow.
  7. Go back to FileZilla Pro.
  8. Check the server certificate details displayed – Organization should be Dropbox, Inc.
  9. Click on OK.
    Your Dropbox directories and files will be displayed in the Remote directories section of the main window.

You can now transfer files between your local machine and your Dropbox.
