Annoying Upgrade Message

Annoying Upgrade Message

New member | Level 2

Almost half of my alloted space is empty yet I get the annoying message asking to upgrade. I get it - Dropbox is desparate to make a sale. I will buy more space when I am ready, and their pushy tactics will only alienate me. So, how do I get rid of this BS notification?

Thanks for your suggestions.

Hey there people @armen  & @ennoherr - apologies for the tardy response; are you still having issues with this?

If you do, please note that you can view your current quota usage on the following page:

https://www.dropbox.com/account/plan

In general, if your Dropbox account is over quota then only syncing stops. Nothing will be removed and syncing will resume when you bring your account under quota again.

To get your account under quota you can do any of the following:

  1. As you know, upgrade your account – you can check out www.dropbox.com/plans for other information.
  2. Increase your quota using referrals bonuses or other promotions.
  3. Leave any shared folders that put you over quota.
  4. Move files that don't need to sync out of your Dropbox folder.

I hope this helped to some extent.

Not enough of those annoying upgrade messages, got a mail from Dropbox that I am not able to register any more devices if I do not upgrade my account.

Thanks Dropbox for making my choice so easy. I am a happy customer of Microsoft now.

has anyone looked at migrating to icloud instead - does it work as well as dropbox especially for file sharing with 3rd parties?
