How do I share a folder?

You can share an existing folder that’s in your Inbox Storage folder. Simply create a folder within your Inbox Storage folder the same way you would anywhere else on your computer.

  1. Log in to the Inbox Storage website.
  2. Go to “Files”.
  3. Move the mouse over the selected folder.
  4. Click on the “Share” button.
  5. Type the email address where you’d like the folder to be sent.
  6. Click on “Create Share”.

For advanced users

  • All folders from within your Inbox Storage can be shared.
  • A folder inside another shared folder can be sent as a new share.
  • Anyone invited to share a folder can be given the right to add, delete or change files within that folder as determined by the share owner.
  • Only the creator of the shared folder can remove invited users.

Regarding copyrighted material

Shared folders and public folders should only contain files you have the legal right to, such as documents, software, music, and videos you created yourself. Unless you own the copyright of the files or have the copyright owner’s permission, you do not have the right to share them. Even purchased or otherwise legally acquired material does not give you the right to share it with third parties over the Internet.

If you are uncertain about the legal right to share certain files, don’t share them. By using the shared folder or public folder features, you are taking responsibility for the files placed in those folders, including their adherence to the Inbox Storage Terms of Use and ownership of all copyrights to them or permission by the copyright owner to share them. As described in the Terms of Use, Inbox Storage will terminate accounts of users who continuously infringe copyright rules or whose accounts are subject to multiple infringement allegations. If you repeatedly place files in shared folders or public folders that infringe others’ copyrights, your account will be terminated.

For more information on the Inbox Storage copyright policy, please read the Intellectual Property Rights section in the Terms of Use.
