  • File destination path: The destination path inside Microsoft One Drive where the files should be placed. By default, the content will go into a directory called "Uploaded on {date}".
  • Invite by email (inc. personal message): Email address of the recipient that should receive the shareable link by email from Microsoft OneDrive, including an optional personal message.
  • Create ZIP archive: Indicates whether the files should be uploaded as a single ZIP file.

How does Dropover "Copy OneDrive Link" work?

When you select "Copy OneDrive Link", Dropover will create a destination directory inside Apps/Dropover. Unless other specific, this directory will by default be "Uploaded at {date}".

It will then upload the content from the shelf to that destination directory. Once uploaded the files are uploaded it will make the destination directory readable by anyone, unless the invite option has been used. In that case, only the recipients will get readable access.

The link of that destination directory is then copied to the clipboard. Anyone who access that link (unless the invite option has been used), will be able to access the uploaded content.

How does Dropover use my data from Microsoft OneDrive?

When you link your Microsoft OneDrive account, Dropover will locally store an authentication token in the keychain. Dropover must use this authentication token in order to communicate with Microsoft.

Dropover can only access files and directories inside the Apps/Dropover directory It does not have access to any other files or directories on your OneDrive.

Who can access my uploaded content?

Anybody you share the link with, will be able to access (but not modify) the files in the destination directory.

When you delete the destination directory, nobody will be able to access it anymore.
