How to Get 4.5 GB of Dropbox Storage for Free

Illustration for article titled How to Get 4.5 GB of Dropbox Storage for Free

The more Dropbox storage space you have, the happier your computer will be. It's true! And the more free Dropbox storage space you get, the happier your wallet will be. And right now, you can get 4.5 GB of Dropbox space FOR FREE. Win freaking win. Here's how.


Lifehacker found that Dropbox is running a beta test on its new Experimental Dropbox 1.3.12 software right now and will give you 4.5 GB of storage (at 500MB increments) to test out some of the new features in Dropbox beta. What the new feature does is enable the automatic imports of photos and videos from cameras, smartphones and SD cards. Basically, when you plug in a camera to your computer, Dropbox will start uploading the pictures to your Dropbox and you'll start getting free storage. Neat!


Yup, Dropbox says:

During this beta period, we are 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.

Of course, as with any test software, you should be careful with backing up your backups before you dive right in but this definitely seems like a dead easy way to grab 4.5GB of Dropbox space. Just plug a camera in and keep uploading photos! It's really that easy, I plugged in my iPhone, clicked okay for Dropbox uploading and was granted 500MB on the spot.

Download and read about the Experimental Dropbox 1.3.12 right here and go get your free gigs. [Dropbox via Ghacks via Slickdeals, Lifehacker]

I still don't trust storing my shit on the cloud after what MegaUpload users went through. There is no way anyone can guarantee that authorities and the legislator won't change their mind about the rights we are "guaranteed" right now.
