Dropbox Pro plans getting double the space starting tonight

- for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

There are a lot of different cloud storage options available. You can choose from Windows SkyDrive, Google Drive, SugarSync, Box, Dropbox, and a bunch more. My personal favorite is Dropbox, and I use it every day. A few months ago Dropbox doubled the amount of free space you get for referring friends from 250MB to 500MB. This means that just by inviting friends you can get up to 18GB of space for free – 2GB for free account and 16GB for referrals. You can also get some bonus space by using the mobile apps.

I’ve tried most of the other cloud storage options, and while there are quite a few that are cheaper, I plan on sticking with Dropbox. The reason is pretty simple: I have never, not once, had a single issue with Dropbox. My files are always available, no matter what tablet, phone, or computer I happen to be using at the time. It’s saved my bacon in many a tech emergency, and it just always works. The first day Google Drive came out, I gave it a try. When I ended up with doubles of all my files after the first 10 minutes, I gave up on it for good.

If you are a current Dropbox Pro subscriber, your Dropbox will double in size tonight. The 50GB plan will now have 100GB and the 100GB plan will now have 200GB of space. The plans pricing will remain the same at $100 and $200 per year respectively. Dropbox will also be adding a 500GB plan if you need even more space. And if you want Dropbox for your team you can get a shared space starting at 1TB.

    More storage for the same price is always good. I just wish Dropbox’s pricing was more competitive. Before this announcement, the plans cost four times more than those offered by Microsoft SkyDrive and Google Drive. Now it’s only twice as expensive.

  • I’ll keep using Dropbox as my primary cloud solution simply because I already have 45GB for free (22GB off bonuses and referrals, 23GB for 2 years for using an HTC), and yeah, partially because it still does some things slightly better than the other services… But Drive and Skydrive will keep iterating and catch up eventually. Dropbox really needs to introduce a lower cost monthly plan even if it’s just for 25GB (50GB ideally), otherwise they’re gonna become irrelevant in the long run.

      45GB is nice! I only have 20GB free. If I can get my hands on a new HTC when my contract is up then I could be up there in the 40 range, but I’ve found 20 is more than enough for me so far.
