Cool Dropbox for academics: increase space - 10-23-2010, 03:24 AM

To all of those at universities/colleges (or that have a university email account), note that dropbox now increases the amount of per referral space from 250MB to 500MB.

I just went from 10GB to 18GB just by confirming my email account.

1) go to Dropbox - Home - Online backup, file sync and sharing made easy. and log in with your credentials
2) go to and enter your university/college email
3) check your email and click on the link to confirm your email
4) watch the little confirmation popup of increase in space!!!

Happy syncing.

SSD(refurb) 64GB

Black Mini 9 w/ 2 Apple logo stickers over the Dell logo, 64GB Dell SSD, bluetooth, webcam; OS X 10.5.8 w/ NetbookInstaller 0.8.3; no more Ubuntu

Well here is a little more space for free from DropBox: just do the tasks and get free space.

I'm up to 11GB of free space now
