Hey, I was under the impression that Dropbox is free for students. I was wondering if that was true and if possible can it be applied to my account?

Hi there Drop Box community - the new free account only allows three devices (in any circumstance) I believe . I currently cant afford the upgrade. Just wondering; if I have 4 devices, one that I only use whilst on the road and mobile, would it work to stop or delete dropbox on say my desktop and install on my laptop whilst on the road and then reinstall on my destop ie the reverse when I get home?

Hi there @Jboy, thanks for reaching out to us!

You don't have to delete the Dropbox app from your computer, you can simply unlink your account. 

As you've also described, since you have four devices, you can unlink one computer or mobile that you don't need to use at a specific point in time and connect another one. 

You can find more on linking and unlinking a device in this article

Hope this helps!
