    Dropbox invites

    This might be old news to some but hopefully new to others.

    By using the bellow invite you get the usual 2GB + 250MB extra and I get the same 250MB bonus as well. Remember that if you register directly at the website without using the invite you wont get the 250MB bonus. The referral link is reusable up to x(?) times so feel free .

    Referral link: http://db.tt/XZ5Bdat


    Here's a little video explaining wth dropbox is


    Feel free to also post your own invites in this thread to gain extra 250MB and offer the same bonus to the person using your invite.

    And I almost forgot, there is an iOS and Android dropbox app


    Update:

    Here are a few ways of gaining quickly, extra free space.

    I had an account from last year and never used it either until I found a nice use for it.

    While away from home and over 3G, I use Airvideo to queue videos for conversion. Airvideo is set to save directly in the Dropbox folder which is then automatically uploaded to dropbox. When around wifi I download all converted videos to the iPhone using the dropbox app.

    My gf and her sister are using it to share pictures and music.

    I found dropbox is a great tool to use for semester long group projects in school. Using that and google docs worked pretty well.

    Won't even need to think about a service like this until at least 2013 when my student login will expire. I can currently use my student drive to store files remotely.

    No, use MY invite, mines better (because then *I* get the extra free storage )

    The thing that's really nice about DropBox vs. just any cloud storage (and certainly vs. just remote storage) is the really seamless integration across Winders/OSX/iOS/Android.

    I'm working on a little side-side gig doing some analysis of the current architecture of a product and I'm kind of adding content when/where-ever. So I've got a document in my DropBox folder that I open directly into my Windows text app, and save directly, then the other night my battery (plus noise/heat) of my PC made me grab the MBP, same thing just opened the file right from the DB folder, made more changes. Then later I opened it directly from my iPad and edited it - again directly - no saving and moving, or after-the-fact sync, it was always updated, ready to open and add additional content. Plus, all my changes, which machine, date/time stamp, is fully tracked in the DB log function.

    Awesome.

    Not really sure I actually have a use for it, signed up using your referral. I might stick some music in there... or something..

    Thought this was kinda funny during the dropbox tour.


    [Edit] I have a question. I want to put music into my dropbox, but don't to move it completely to there. I could copy it, but I don't particularly want two copies of files.
    I assume they're my only options?

    It is very handy isn't it? (I mean dropbox, not my invites )

    To be honest I wouldn't be using it if there wasn't integration among platforms. More specifically iOS.

    I think it can be done. Refer to this page: https://www.dropbox.com/help/175

    Don't forget to post your own referral links here

    Dropbox ain't good at all unless you purchase some decent amount of storage. 2gb is almost next to nothing.

    I have 16 GB from simply inviting people, sharing folders, and doing the 5 GB free giveaway for uploading vids and pics.

A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    That doesn't sound so bad but its abit of a hassle getting other people (friends) to sign up to gain that 16GB.

    I'm sure most of my friends wouldn't be interested.

    It was an annoying process.

    already use dropbox. its a terrific tool for students. Not only is it free, but its 1000 times more effective than blackboard. My university uses blackboard and its awful. Never works how its supposed to and very slow. Dropbox on the otherhand is always handy on my comp. Documents are uploaded quickly and its an easy way to allocate documents and information among a large number of places. Don't pay for $#@! like carbonite, save $#@! for free on dropbox!

    Somebody get me a doctor, I ain't feelin' ill ...But I ain't feelin' this at all...

    I feel that it's mildly coincidental that this thread was bumped when Google Driver is on its way. https://www.google.com/settings/storage/?hl=en

    I think that looks pretty good.

    I use DropBox all the time, to sync across my iOS devices, my main notebook, it’s super handy for keeping “active” working documents, several apps I use sync up directly.

    I’ve got like 3.25GB from just reading all the docs, doing the simple bonus perks, and I think a couple of invites.
