It took a while, but I have control over my email, and I feel that I am finally in control over all my files and documents as well.
I am using Dropbox every single day. I use it to get access to close to all of my files and documents across all my devices (Mac, iPhone and iPad), and I use it for backup (my files are available in the cloud). I am still using the free version, since I have more than enough space to keep most of my files and documents in Dropbox.
I started out just using Dropbox the way most users do, with a free 2 GB account, but as soon as I received a message that my Dropbox was almost full, I had to start and investigate wether I should upgrade to the paid version or if I could do something to get more free space.
This is how I get more free space on Dropbox
As far as I know, you can get more free space on Dropbox by:
- Refering your friends, family, and coworkers to Dropbox
- Complete the “Get Started” guide
- Connect your Facebook and Twitter accounts to Dropbox, and follow Dropbox on Twitter
- Upload your photos to Dropbox using the Camera Upload feature
- Send feedback
- Link Dropbox with your Mailbox for iOS account
I got almost all of my free space by referring my friends to Dropbox, but I have also completed the “Get Started” guide, and I have connected Facebook and Twitter accounts to Dropbox, and I am following Dropbox on Twitter, and I have linked Dropbox with my Mailbox account as well.
How much free space can you earn?
You can have a total of 16 GB (for a total of 18 GB plus whatever other free space you’ve earned), and 32 GB for Dropbox Pro accounts (in addition to the amount you paid for already). When you refer a new friend to Dropbox, you’ll get 500 MB of free space (if you’re using the free version of Dropbox, if you’re a pro subscriber, you’ll get 1 GB extra for each new friend you are referring).
Are you using Dropbox?
Like I said, I am using Dropbox every single day for my files and documents. I am still using the free version, since I still have enough space. But, I will upgrade as soon as I need more space. What about you, are you using Dropbox, and if you are, are you using the free version or paid version?
