These days its easier and more convenient to store your files online using one of the popular free cloud storage services like Dropbox or Google Drive, to name a few. While these services let you easily upload and share files with others online, they don’t allow for other people to upload files to your folders. This feature is useful if you want your friends to be able to upload photos from yesterday’s party or let your colleagues to upload some work related docs.

You will then be provided with an upload URL, which you can share with friends. They will then be able to upload files to your designated folder. You can enable a password for that folder, but that is optional.
