Dropbox is offering a free 3GB of storage for trying their new desktop Beta programme (1.3.4 or higher) or by using their new Android app.

This seems to be a repeat of the offer that first appeared in February.

I tried it then & the extra storage I gained is a permanent addition to my account. All I did was load up a flash pen with a load of pics & let it uplaod, easy peasy.

All you need to do is use their new picture upload service to upload 3 GB of pics. For every 500MB you uplaod they'll give you 500MB for free.


Like I said, I tried this last month & it was very easy.

This still works!!

Just plug in a pen, leave it overnight & Bob's yer uncle :)

It'll work with video files too so you don't have to have zillions of jpegs.

what a bunch of hoops to get through to get a bit of free space .. come on dropbox get a client for ARM linux distros ... there are gonna be thousands of rasp. pi users soon disappointed with you like the rest of us have been for a couple of years that you just ignore the >11k petition on your support forum for it ! for all of us with ARM NAS's

Got the 5gb last time and its permanent.
If you did the same, you don't get the 3gb this time if you are wondering.

Hi,

Can anyone tell me what the difference between dropbox and box is? Box offer 50gb for android users compared to this 3gb.

I dont think there is a limit on individual file size with dropbox (100mb per file with box). I find dropbox is much nicer to use, however I do love that i've got my 20gb of photos backed up on box for free.

Sounds good but I can't get the older 1.3... link to load to install that. Is there a backup/mirror for it?

If you make a folder called DCIM on your memory stick it fools the uploader into thinking it's a camera.
