Get more space

There are several ways to earn more Dropbox space:

  • Complete the Getting Started guide.
  • Refer friends and family.
  • Upgrade your account.
  • How much space is left in my account?

    To learn how much space is available in your Dropbox account:

    1. Sign in to dropbox.com.
    2. Click your name or avatar at the top of any Dropbox page.
    3. Click Settings.
      • If you have paired a personal and work account, select the account you’d like to view.
    4. The bar under your email address represents your Dropbox space usage.

    Save space on your hard drive with Selective Sync

    Selective sync lets you sync a subset of Dropbox folders to your computer. This can save space on your hard drive.

    1. Click the Dropbox icon in the system tray or menu bar.
    2. Click the gear icon.
    3. Click Preferences.
    4. Click Account.
    5. Click Change Settings.
    6. Click Account.
    7. A window will appear with a list of all the main folders in your Dropbox. Uncheck the folders that you don't want to sync to your hard drive.

    Why have I not received my referral bonus?

    You can easily check the status of your referrals:

    1. Sign in to dropbox.com.
    2. Open the account page.
    3. Click View all space earned.

    There are five referral statuses:

  • Invitation sent. The person you referred hasn't yet signed up for Dropbox.
  • Waiting for install. The person you referred has signed up, but hasn't installed and/or signed in from the desktop application.
  • Waiting for email verification. The person you referred installed the desktop app and signed in, but hasn't verified their email address.
  • Ineligible. The person you referred isn’t eligible for the referral program.
  • Completed. The person you referred has completed the referral; both you and your referral have been credited bonus space.
  • Space
