Who doesn’t use Dropbox?
If you don’t, sign up here and start enjoying the bonus of cloud sync and storage across all of your devices!
For those of you who use it already, like me, you’re probably running out of space.
The good news is that dropbox have annoucned on their blog that they’re doubling the free space you earn for referrals.
The GREAT news is that they’re making this space bonus retroactive based on your previous referrals and you don’t have to do anything to claim this extra space, it will just happen.
What alerted me to this was my dropbox suddenly popping up and notifying me that I now have 20GB of storage space available, so I figured I’d find out why!
Previously referrals would earn you 250MB of free space, now doubled to 500. You can also earn a maximun of 16GB free space via referrals, which used to be an 8GB maximum.
For those of you who utilized the HTC promotion apk file that was put out on XDA Developers site, you’re in for a nasty shock. Dropbox posted on their forums that they intend to remove all ill gotten space from users who have used this early release apk (and they can track this). There has also been mention that users who are starting to lose this bonus 23GB are losing ALL of their bonus space from referrals as well, not just the HTC promotion space.
I guess what it boils down to is if it’s too good to be true, or it feels hacky/dirty it probably is something you should be cautious of doing.
