Enable “Public Folder” for New Dropbox Accounts

Posted: March 28, 2013 at 6:49 am

The popular storage service Dropbox is reportedly ditching its public folders after July 31 2012. Dropbox’s public folders have become one of the easiest ways for users to share files over the Web. Users need only to drop the file into their public folder and direct folks to it, who can then download it. With the new links function, however, Dropbox users need to choose the “get link” option to share a file or folder with others.

Create or enable Public folder for your new account on Dropbox

New Dropbox users can still create public folder on Dropbox by following the link https://www.dropbox.com/enable_public_folder, then click on “enable public folder” button on dialog shown.

Next to enable public folder you need to verify your email address by clicking on “Send email” button on the pop up, check your inbox and click on verification link sent by dropbox, “your public folder is now enabled” message will be shown on your Dropbox account.
