FileStork – request files from anyone using Dropbox

Dropbox is one of those services (free) I use all the time. I have my important files backed up to Dropbox and synced between my home computer and school computer. I can also access these files from any web browser and my smartphone and tablet. I was using a service (Drop.io) in the past to have students send files to my Dropbox, but it shut down. Now there is a new one.

FileStork is a free service that allows you to request files from people right into your Dropbox. This is a great way to collect work from students or files from colleagues.

It is easy to use. You simply send a request to someone via email, or set up a standing link that users can use. They click on the link (emailed or standing) and then upload their files. The files are then available to you in your Dropbox. You can even limit what kinds of files you will allow them to upload.

If you use DropboxFileStork is a great service to use. If you don’t use Dropbox, check it out!

    Thanks for taking time from your busy summer to keep us updated on new tools you find. I finally took the plunge and set up a Dropbox account, and although I’ve only uploaded photos to it so far, I am loving how I can then view those photos on my iPad and my iPhone without using storage space on those devices. Looking forward to seeing you at edcamp on August 18.

    I think that this servise http://bit.ly/A7INcH is much better then the DropBox, they provide more free space, 5Gb while dropbox gives only 2Gb, and bonuses are bigger. However I have these two services at the same time, and totaly have 7 Gb space for free :)
