Thank you for your quick answer. Unfortunately my direct reply didn't reach you. It is not the extra space I am concerned about. I advised my friend to uninstall while she is no longer able to upload in our shared box. I think something went wrong there, because it is certainly not the limit.
She did so. Now I try to invite her to join dropbox, but it says that she is already a member. Is there a time to wait before it can be done?
You cannot invite her to join Dropbox (and thus gain referral space) if she already is a member I'm afraid @Ruud2 .
Uninstalling the software does not close or delete the account. It simply removes the software from the computer.
Even deleting the account and rejoining wouldnt gain you new space as the system knows she's already been signed up before.
I'm afraid in this instance there is no way to now get the referral space.

Are you sure she didn't reach her limit? Remember, just because you have additional space available and are (I'm assuming) the owner of the share, doesn't mean that she has enough space available within her own account to upload to it.
She can only upload within the limits of her own account, so it's very possible that while you still have space available, she has run out and wouldn't be able to upload to the share anymore.
As Mark mentioned, uninstalling doesn't delete an account. She still has an account so you can't re-invite her to Dropbox. She needs to simply reinstall the Dropbox client and sign back in again.
