Questions about uploading files when promotional space is expiring

Questions about uploading files when promotional space is expiring

I have a promotion of 100GB of free space for 3 months for a promotion, but I have only used 60GB of 100, there are 5 days left until that promotion ends and I have to upload some files that in total make 40GB, the problem is that I don't have long enough to upload all the files, the question I have is that, if I move the folders to the dropbox from the PC and they remain uploaded, if the promotion ends, will it still let me upload those missing files or will it not let me?

Hi there, @oku016, thanks for posting to the Dropbox Community and happy Friday!

 

Basically, as long as you have enough space, you can upload your files, by dragging them to your Dropbox folder for them to sync to your account.

 

If they finish uploading, then you're good to go.

 

If your promotion expires, while the files are still syncing, then syncing will stop, until enough space is freed up for the upload to continue.

 

I hope that clarifies things, but let me know if you still have questions.
