Dropbox is a file hosting operated by Dropbox, Inc. that offers cloud strogae, file synchronization and client software. Dropbox allows users to create a special folder on each of their computers, which Dropbox then synchronises so that it appears to be the same folder (with the same contents) regardless of the computer it is viewed on. Files placed in this folder are also accessible through a website and mobile phone applications.

Today we are going to talk about the free plan which starts from 2Gb and goes upto 18Gb max as per referal (500Mb). Lets assume that you have made a fresh account and you got 2Gb free space, now you need to make it 7Gb total free space without inviting your friends, how shall you do that, well the trick is simple and all you need is a portable usb disks which has lot of images on it or a camera and we need to start uploading it on dropbox servers.

There is a new automatic photo and video import feature. Connect to a camera or smartphone, and you’ll have an option to automatically import the videos and pictures to Dropbox. To help promote this new feature, for every 500MB of photos and videos automatically uploaded, you’ll receive another 500MB space bonus, up to 5.0GB total.

How it’s done:-

  • Download respective dropbox client from the official website, click here and then install.
  • Connect to your camera or smartphone, click Import pictures and videos using Dropbox in the Auto Play window. Make sure that AutoPlay feature is enabled.
  • Dropbox will import the files from your portable devices and then automatically upload to Dropbox server.
  • After upload is complete, you’ll receive another space bonus.


That’s it Njoy !
