Hi

I currently have a free Dropbox account. If somone else shares a folder with me that contains more that 2GB of data, will I have to upgrade in order to access the folder?

Thank you very much

Yes.

 

If you don't need to upload files back to the folder or modify anything in it already, ask the owner for a Shared Link to the folder instead.
