Free 3gigabytes of storage for your Dropbox account.

Found 14th Mar 2012
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.

Nice, drop box is a very good service, I'll try this.

Thanks

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

have to try this one out, thanks op

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.

works a treat thankyou

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.

Failing on point 7.1 for me. The IMEI generator has been removed form the dropbox space.

Thanks Milkfloat for the tip - worked like a charm!

You can get another 640MB by following the steps at dropbox.com/free

How does this compare to Windows Sky Drive? I've been using the free 25gb storage on that for quite a while and been fairly impressed, they are slowly making it work well on mobiles and there's currently an iphone app (but not yet android or ipad). Least Microsoft should be around and fairly secure for a while yet and hopefully they may continue to up the free storage

The main difference is that Dropbox will sync up and down to your device, whereas sky drive is only cloud storage. You can use Live Mesh though which works in a similar way to Dropbox and is also Microsoft.

Does it have to be pictures or can you upload just general data? Videos.. .rar's etc.

I don't have that many photos, but I have stacks of videos from my camcorder I could upload.
