Dropbox is one my all-time favorite application. The file sharing application gives you the ability to synch several computers by simply dropping a file to a folder. All your other computers (Windows, Mac or Linux) that have Dropbox installed, will synchronize automatically and get the updated files.
When you join Dropbox, you probably selected a free account that came with 2GB of disk space. To increase space, you can refer friends, family and others to join Dropbox and you and your friend will get an additional 250MB of space. I’ve referred several friends and now have 4.38GB. It’s nothing compared to someone I read online that had 17GB.
While referral is great, there’s another easy way of getting extra space from Dropbox. If you connect your Twitter account with Dropbox, you’ll get an additional 128MB. If you connect with Facebook, it’s another 128MB. If you follow @Dropbox on Twitter, it’s another 128MB.
If you tweet how much you love Dropbox, it’s another 128MB. Hence, my tweet about Dropbox the other night. All in all, if you do all of the above, you’ll get an additional 640MB of free disk space. Mind you, these are services that you already have, since most people already have Facebook and Twitter accounts. All you have to do is activate your free disk space.
To get your free space, just login to Dropbox and access Dropbox for free. One more thing, if you haven’t joined Dropbox yet, use this link to join. You and I will get an additional 250MB for using that link.
