    As of 2 days ago the friend referral bonus was boosted to 1GB per referral with a maximum of 32GB. Maybe worth updating the article!

    I got excited by the article title, thinking I could triple my 100GB storage limit! I am currenlty hassling Dropbox to give me more space, something in the range of 200GB. SugarSync (a dropbox competitor) offer 250GB for $25/month which is a much better deal than dropbox. Might jump ship in the near future.

    That said, the dropbox free account is a great free service! There is also android/iphone apps that allow you to access your files on the move!

    Really? It still says 500MB over most of the site for referrals.

    Sadly this is only for people using the free version - I totally agree about gaps in the pricing and service though. It's a hefty hike from free to the first tier for starters.

    I suspect the site will be updated soon, even my friends with free accounts got the email from Dropbox saying the referrals were increased to 1GB and they also plan to backdate any referrals that have already been processed! :thumb:

    I'm huge fan of the service, and for backing up photos its the only real solution! Hopefully soon they will make a bigger effort to compete with SugarSync!

    Get 16gb without spamming your mates:

    1. Register for google adwords but dont use it.
    2. Wait for a free voucher to be emailed to you.
    3. Place an add for dropbox with the keyword dropbox
    4. Wait for the referalls to roll in.

    I got roped in to sign up for DropBox about 1.5 years ago and also pestered a couple of pals to do it. Ended up with 3.75GB free space, but haven't used DropBox since. Don't really trust them. Especially after the row last year about their terms of service.

    A colleague at work swears by SpiderOak, by the way. Should be a lot more secure.

    I use SpiderOak and Box - SpiderOak for security, and Box 'cos they gave HP TouchPad owners 50GB for free. Which is nice.

    I use it for sharing stuff between my VM and the host PC as it seemed to be the easiest option and i hardly dent the 2GB... but more is always better... as is free...

    I use Box.net personally. 50gb's of free space, 2gb file limits for any free account on android or iphone. Also works with PC but the 50gb for free has to be activated through a phone I think. They run that as a limited time offer every few months for the past year or so. I tried Dropbox and just didn't like it.

    Now up to 3.38GB, and didn't even keep the Twitter and Facebook connections. I use Dropbox to sync documents between my machines, and it just works flawlessly without me having to worry about anything. Tried SugarSync but found that it whole files rather than changes, and would disconnect more frequently than Dropbox did, so ended up coming back.

    SugarSync should technically be superior to Dropbox, but the reliability just lets it down a bit. The fact that everything has to be synced through the Dropbox folder is a bit of a pain, but aliases and Dock shortcuts completely remove that annoyance for my usage.
