Attention – Dropbox users, get extra 5GB to reach 23GB

Writing about web page http://forums.dropbox.com/topic.php?id=52900

Many SMEs found Dropbox a handy tool to sync their files among multiple PCs, mobile devices, etc. However, the SME team here at WMG gets a particular question all the time - how do I get more than 2GB default space?

Now, with the release of dropbox new build - version 1.3.12, we reveal the "black magic" to get 23G for your dropbox account.

Get 5GB within 1 minute:

1. download the new build - http://forums.dropbox.com/topic.php?id=54227&replies=217

2. Import a photo from your camera or USB key via the new dropbox, get 500MB extra

3. find any 5GB file, rename the file extension as .mp4, put that in your USB key, import via dropbox

4. wait until the status of your dropbox changes to "upload" (from index file), delete the mp4 file from your "camera uploads" folder

5. now enjoy your extra 5GB

Then Get your dropbox to 23GB

1. Invite your friends/staff, get 8GB max

2. Find a .ac.uk email (or .edu if you know someone reading in a US uni), and get this email to join your account. Your space gets doubled to 18.3GB

3. with the 5GB from the previous step, enjoy your 23GB free cloud storage!

For those ones who don't have dropbox yet, get it here: http://db.tt/pkrN8OK

    Thanks for the tip, not sure if it still works though I’ve been at it for a while and can’t get above 2.25 gig. I could use a few ‘friends’ to increase my limit (Teaching Internationally – really helps out with transferring files from home and school) so please feel free to use my referral link db.tt/I8Md4FD3 once you’ve maxed out yours. Thanks very much for the help – Hope this works as I’m already at my limit!
