How to get more free space on Dropbox

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.

free space dropbox

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:

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?

    Hi Jens, I was fortunate to get 48GB of Dropbox space free when I bought my Samsung Galaxy (promotion expires 8/15/2014). Now I have 52.38 GB, all free, and use it daily.

    Yep, I have been using DB for several years now and love how easy it is to store, retrieve and share files. I’ve only got 4GB of free space though, so I have to be careful about what files I want to use it for.

    Hey Jens

    I use Dropbox to backup my WordPress files as well as for syncing financial transactions on a financial program I use, YNAB.

    I’m still on the free account and I’ve managed to get up to 4.88GB for referrals and all of the other things you mention.

    I love that I can save pictures from my iPhone onto Dropbox and they’re there waiting for me on my PC!

    Hi Jens,
    Very nice method you have pointed out.
    This is something kind of affiliate program from Dropbox.
    And a good useful service or product in terms of promotion.

    Dropbox is an awesome tool – I use it for storing all my customers files.

    I invite most customers to install it so that they can share their files with me and so that I can build up my free storage.

    I think I’m pretty close to the limit now so will probably have to consider moving to a paid option soon but free storage has been great for more whilst I’ve got the business setup and established.
