Increase the space on Dropbox by 5GB using the beta version
Another method to add more space is to use the beta version recently created by the Dropbox team.
In fact, in this beta version the functionality of theimport of photos and videos from cameras and SD cards and from mobile phones and smartphones.
Just to better test this functionality, who will use this beta version and will use Dropbox for importing photos or videos from cameras, SD cards, etc., personal space on Dropbox will be further increased.The increase is obtained in this way:
- increment of 500MB when you import the first photo and / or video,
- increase of others 500MB every time you import 500MB of photos and / or videos up to an altitude of 4.5GB.
With this method it will therefore be possible to have up to 5GB of extra space.important to use the Dropbox import system to upload photos / videos, otherwise the space will not be increased.
To use the service, you need to install the program on all the devices on which you want to use Dropbox, as already mentioned, to obtain this increase, the version to use the beta version, available at these links based on the operating system you use: Dropbox for Windows Dropbox for Mac OS XDropbox for LinuxDropbox for AndroidDropbox for iOS
You I suggest hurrying you to make the increase because, probably, when this test period ends, the opportunity to have these additional 5GB will no longer be made available using the method described above.
To use the program you need register an account on Dropbox (free), so as to use the same account on the various devices, those who do not yet have an account can create one by going to this page: Create a free Dropbox account (the link with my referrals, upon registration you will get another 250MB of extra space).
