Why should I store my files on an external server ?

Sometimes your hosting provider doesn’t provide you with enough storage, by connecting Droppy to an external FTP server you are able to store larger files for longer times (This depends on the maximum storage size of your FTP server), keeping the files separated from your application server will also lead to better performance of your application.

Note: This plugin will not work together with the Amazon S3 plugin.
