Re: Storage size for free account

Storage size for free account

I readily admit that I may not have remembered correctly, but I seem to recall getting 8GB of space when I signed up for Dropbox.,  My storage limit is now 2.88.  Is it my faulty memory, or did Dropbox change the rules once they figured out they gave too much away in the beginning.  If thats true, shouldn't they honor the original commitment and change the rules for the newbies?  Kind of cheesy

There were also several 5GB promotional space awards around, which will now have expired.

I started with 2Gb, and got more by attaching my cellphone

but

now I see your competition, Box gives 10Gb free for first time users, do you intent to revise your starter level to match your competition?

They have never increased it from day 1 - they've never needed to despite all the protests of doom and gloom. 

 

I cant see it happening if I'm honest
