Dropbox free space offer - is it pointless if my space is already over full?

I've purchased a new laptop which comes with an offer of 25GB free Dropbox space for a year.

My Dropbox account is already over full (I have around 50GB of files, but my account limit is now about 10GB), because I accepted a similar offer (now expired) with a previous laptop.

So my question is, if I add the free 25GB of Dropbox space to my existing account, will I be able to use it, or will it just get absorbed making up the deficit in my storage space?

Many thanks in advance for any response.

In general, your promotional space should be added to your storage, however, I’d recommend checking out this article and selecting the relevant manufacturer or service provider for more accurate info.

As the question wasnt actually answered I'll try and do that for you...

 

Basically if you added the 25gb of space your account would go to 35gb in quota meaning you still couldnt use the space. 

What I would state, however, is you really do need to try and get back below quota as although its not happened before the T&C's do state they can delete files to bring people under limit.
