Get 4.5GB Of Extra Dropbox Space for Free

Posted on the 02 February 2012 by Tftb @TFTB

With the new camera import feature added to Dropbox, Dropbox is offering additional free space while this feature is being tested out.  This is available for users who are using the photo import feature.


You get increased 500 MB upto 4.5 GB of extra space for uploading your photos and videos directly to Dropbox. This has to be done by running the new Dropbox client which allows you to enable the photo import feature.

You can download and install the client from the Dropbox forums, for more information read here.

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.

So its still not clear if your extended storage space is valid till the beta period of it stays with you forever. But till then  you can experiment and take the extra free storage space and flaunt your jealous friends.
Most likely this storage space upgrade would be permanent.

Once installed, you need to enable the photo import feature. The photo import feature relies on Autoplay, which needs to be enabled. This is done under Start Menu > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > AutoPlay in Windows 7.

If everything goes fine and you use the feature as expected, you would be getting 4.5GB of extra storage space absolutely free.

And if you are looking for tips and tricks to increase your Dropbox storage capacity, do check here to get some free extra storage space.
