Pretty easy way to gain 45GB of space for 6 months.


  1. Login to Dropbox
  2. Open a picture in your account.
  3. Right-click/ Open Button and select Pixlr X
  4. Change image in Pixlr (e.g. Crop) and click Save
  5. In the Save dialog click on the banner

  1. Sign up/Log in to upwork.com. Easy to sign up as a client instead of freelancer. No need to fill in all details.
  2. Click Messages.
  3. You'll see a banner, click Redeem offer .

You'll then be presented with a screen with a code generated. Easy.

Took all of 2 minutes to do both. Make sure you turn your ad-blocker off so it doesn't block showing the banners.

      They keep your files in your account but you won't be able to add any new files or new versions of the same file until your usage drops below allowed quota.

    What is the bargain here?
    It is only a temporary increase of storage and you could get on trouble after 6 momths forcing you to pay excess storage when it scale back.

    Dropbox and Box are by far the best file storage solutions, but it costs too much. My Uni office 365 account gives 1 TB for free forever, but One Drive is a turd to use.

      IMO for Windows users OneDrive is on par with DropBox or better due to tighter OS integration. My biggest complaint was their Andoid app, but they vastly improved it with recent updates (still not perfect, but definitely more usable now).

        OneDrive has poor menu functionality and usability. Doesn't have that comprehensive user menu that Dropbox has.
        When something fails to Sync in OneDrive, be prepared for the onset of PTSD trying to fix it.

          Totally agreed - 50% of the time, it works 50% of the time. What a POS platform.

          Our company uses 365 for emails and has 1TB OD, and yet we went with DB business account for actual usage.

        Agreed. OneDrive Files on Demand is awesome.

        6tb for less than $100 a year is by far the best value too.

        •  

          Google Drive has files on demand functionality too but frustratingly it only enables it for business accounts on Google Apps platform.

      Really? I've been having numerous stupid issues with my bosses Dropbox at work (I'm a Google Drive user)

      Did you know, if you only have say 5gb of space available and I share a folder with you with 10gb of files in it, it will push you over your quota!? Even though they aren't your files and are only being 'shared'?

      Also how do you find file information (sizes, resolution etc) via the Web interface?

      I have found Dropbox incredibly frustrating!

      Technically the OneDrive from your Uni is OneDrive for Business (aka SharePoint) - the consumer version of OneDrive is much less of a turd.

    Left dropbox a while ago when they limited app/computer installation for syncing to 3 per free account.

    I don't understand why Dropbox has only two plans - 2TB and 3TB.
    I only need maybe 10-20GB, and don't want to pay $15 every month for 1.98TB which I'll never use..

    I get an error message when trying to open an image with Pixlr
    something went wrong when loading the image .. please try again later …

    •  

      Try this, I had the same issue:
      1. Go to pixlr.com
      2. Search for Dropbox till you get to the 25gb banner
      3. Click on banner and it will generate a code for you

      No need to open file in Pixlr this way.

      Cheers

    e.g. I have 22.5gb storage and I haven't paid a cent for subscription fees. It's just from referral bonus and other lifetime bonuses. Has been temporarily larger too from things like campus cup, etc. But I migrated most of my documents for uni/work to OneDrive for windows compatibility, and nativity. Also get 1tb of storage with 365 for free as a student. I still use my Dropbox for misc things. It handles shared folders and stuff a bit better, and I find more people tend to have it installed for such occasions.

    Unless you’re going to pay for that 45GB from 6 months onwards, I don’t see the point of this.

    Setup your own free/open source private cloud syncing service. Don't trust other companies to hold your data, and your info.

  •  

    Box.com was offering 50GB for life a few years ago. I made two accounts and linked them. Still using those two accounts.

  •  

    Out of curiosity, how do you check what days the bonus storage will expire? I don't seem to see it in my 'plan' section on my personal account.

  •  

    Thanks. got 25GB.

    Dropbox is such trash. Terrible transfer speeds, and taking up your space when people send you files is just ridiculous.

    Thanks mate!

    I find Dropbox the best in terms of usability, but they are terrible in terms of price. The price hike this year (almost $60 more per year!) was outrageous.

      Dropbox is a market leader in terms of consumer cloud storage solutions. But the reality is their being gradually beaten into the ground by Microsoft and Google who are best in breed for enterrprise storage. Dropbox has forsaken their consumer market though and is gradually bleeding them by increasing pricing and offering plans that don't meet customer needs, usually under the guise of an 'upgrade'. They should spend less on marketing speak and more on just delivering better plans. Dropbox is too expensive and doesn't compete on features. Since they launched on the stock market they have lost 50% of their share price in a year and its been in decline since. They company doesn't return a profit either and its been operating at year on year losses for at least the past 5 years.
