I need a "basic" account, for cheap!

Level 2

I had a trial account that has apparently ended. I only use this account occasionally, maybe only once every 3 months. Is there an account that might meet my needs without costing much? Thanks for the help!

Basic accounts are free and offer 2GB to start. You can earn additional space through referrals (up to 16GB additional, 500MB/referral x 32 referrals). The lowest cost paid subscription is a Plus account, which is $9.99/month, for 1TB of space.

Hi Bob, what account do you have currently? You can check this from here.
Accounts are active so long as you log into them once every 12 months. You can see our plans here, and Dropbox Plus is the cheapest subscription, excluding the free plan.
Keep me posted!
