How to Share your Backup with Professional Services

Sharing a Backup with DropBox

  1. Navigate to https://dropbox.com.

    If you do not have an account, you will need to create one to proceed.

  2. Once logged in, you will see a section to the top right that will allow you to upload content.

    Upload Options
    • If you have an entire folder, then select Upload Folder.
    • If you have a single archive file, such as a .zip or .tar, then select Upload File.
  3. That will open a standard File Explorer; find the backup and select it for upload.
  4. Once it has uploaded, you will need to make it shareable. Hovering over the item will expose a Share button.
  5. Click the Share button, then click Create link in the bottom corner to generate the link for this file.
  6. Once the link has been generated, click Copy link, then send it back to Professional Services in response to their email.

Sharing a Backup with Google Drive

  1. Navigate to http://drive.google.com.

    If you are not logged in to a Google account, find the button that says Go to Google Drive and log in there. If you don’t have a Google account we recommend using DropBox instead.

  2. If you haven't already uploaded your backup, click the New option in the top right-hand corner of your Google Dashboard.
    New Button
    • If you have a single file, such as a .zip or a .tar, select File Upload and use the File Explorer that pops up to select the file. 
    • If you are providing the files in a folder, select Folder Upload and use the File Explorer that pops up to select the folder.
  3. Once uploaded, the item will need to be made shareable with anyone that has the link. Right-click on the item and then click Get Shareable Link.

    Get Shareable Link
  4. Clicking that button will prompt another pop up that lists some details about the item. From here, you will need to click Sharing Settings.
  5. Another box will pop up where you can select who has access to the item; select Anyone with the link can edit from the drop-down.

    If you are using a company GSuite account, you may need to click More in that drop-down to share it outside of your company.

  6. The final step is to click Copy Link, and send that link to Professional Services in your response to their email.
