I got an invitation a long time ago. Now finally I created an account, installed the desktop application, uploaded first files and verified email. I have not received my 500MB and neither has the person who invited me. I did the process twice deleting the account just in case. Can you please tell me what I did wrong or add the 500MB to both of us? Thanks
Were you sent an invitation to join a shared folder, or was it actually a referral? Only referrals are awarded bonus space, and only when the Dropbox application has been installed on a unique computer (mobile devices don't count). Being invited to join a shared folder isn't the same, and no space is awarded for that. If it was a referral, the person that sent it to you can check its status in their account page.
He finds my email in the invitations he snt, and he gets now the message that "his invitation was never accepted, and that sorry I am now using Dropbox". Which is true but hoping we could both benefit.
The invitation link showed error. Maybe the link was too old but he could not re-invite me/re-send the link so I registered the new account thinking if he cannot send me an updated invitation the system must recognise the original invitation.
I tried with the Dropbot but t failed to provide an answer. Thanks
