How to get 5GB of free additional Dropbox storage

dropbox

Dropbox is arguably the best known cloud-based file sharing service. It’s available for Windows PCs, Macs, iPhones and Android smartphones. You get 2GB free of charge, but here is a tip to get 5GB more…

With the service’s latest beta desktop software, Dropbox has added an automatic photo import feature. Plug in a camera or smartphone, and you’ll have the option to automatically import those pictures to your Dropbox account.

During this beta period, Dropbox is also offering additional free space to test automatic uploading of photos and videos. For every 500MB of photos and videos automatically uploaded, you’ll receive another 500MB space bonus, up to 4.5GB total. [Update: To clarify, you can get up to 5GB of free space with this feature, if you count the initial 500MB space for the first photo import].

As usual, Dropbox strongly recommend making a backup of your Dropbox before upgrading to this build as we’ll need a few weeks to be certain of its stability.

When you are finished, and credited , just remove your freshly uploaded pictures and keep the 5GB of additional storage!
