A dropbox is a term associated with cloud computing where you can add files remotely to a server. If you want to create your own FTP dropbox, then you can use the inbuilt Internet Information Services Manager to set it up. This means that if you are at a friend's house or on a work computer, you can connect to your home computer via FTP and upload documents, multimedia or anything else that you want to store there.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click "Start," and then "Control Panel," and then "Programs." Click "Turn Windows features on or off."

  2. 2

    Expand the "Internet Information Services" checklist and enable "FTP Server." Press "Enter" to enable the service. This may take a few minutes to install.

  3. 3

    Click "Back" in the "Programs" window and then double-click "Administrative Tools."

  4. 4

    Double-click "IIS Manager." Right-click the "Server" option and click "Add FTP Site." Follow the onscreen instructions to set up your FTP dropbox.
