Techopedia Explains Cloud File Sharing

Cloud file sharing works when a file is stored on an online or cloud file-sharing service. The file is uploaded using the service control panel and upon successful upload the file is generated with a unique URL. File owners can share this URL with multiple users for accessing and downloading the file. The file is stored on the file-sharing provider’s cloud storage servers and can be accessed globally at any time though the Internet.
