Hi.
Looking to upgrade to Family plan:
1. Can I manage the space for each user?
2. Do I lose the space i have now in case of downgrade?
3. Can I change the billing name?
4. In the future, can I change to a larger space than 2TB?

  1. Yes you can 
  2. No you will get it back (as long as its not a time limited promotion). In fact you'll keep it when you upgrade - you'll get 2TB plus your bonus space. 
  3. Yes at www.dropbox.com/account
  4. Not at present, 2TB is the maximum. .

Thank you.
Another question please, if I have a folder of 10GB and share it between the Family users, does it count as one time of 10GB or counts as many users that sharing this folder?

Hi @MoeHan, actually, regarding your first query, the Family manager can't manage the space for each user.

The 2 TB quota is shared among everyone, but can't be restricted for any user.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know!
