Where are my files stored if I haven't put in my storage credentials?

When you perform a pick on a file from your computer or mobile device, that file gets uploaded and stored to Filestack's servers where it will be accessible online. However, if you have configured one of our many storage options, then Filestack will treat a simple pick as a pickAndStore and deposit that file into your personal cloud storage.

If you use pick or pickMultiple (not pickAndStore), on a file located in a cloud source like dropbox, and you do not have storage credentials configured, then the Filestack link will be a symbolic link back to the file where it is stored in Dropbox. So, if the file owner moves or deletes that file from their dropbox account, the Filestack link will become broken.

The v3 picker stores files by default. If you have not configured your own S3 or other storage option, the v3 picker will store the files to Filestack's S3 buckets. Symbolic links will not be generated unless you explicitly tell it to generate them by using preferLinkOverStore in your picker code.
