Get Up To 4.5GB Of Extra Space On Dropbox

You can never have too much Dropbox space. For a limited time, you can grab some additional free space while Dropbox is testing its automatic photo and video uploading feature. In exchange for trying the experimental build, you can get up to 4.5GB of extra space for free.Experimental build 1.3.12 imports photos automatically from cameras, phones, SD cards, and batch uploads and downloads files. The forum post on Dropbox says:

During this beta period, we are also offering additional free space to test automatic uploading of photos and videos. For every 500MB of photos and videos automatically uploaded, you’ll receive another 500MB space bonus, up to 4.5GB total.

The downloads for Windows, Mac and Linux are only available from the forum post. Note that you’re also strongly advised to make a backup of what’s in your Dropbox before upgrading to this build (emphasis on the “experimental” wording). When I installed the client, the software automatically detected my SD card and started uploading the photos, which it put into a new “Camera Uploads” folder and my account had the extra 500MB automatically added. Sweet. Now to find some more photos and videos to add…
