Ever wish your PC had a “super folder,” one that would automatically sync whatever you dragged into it with your phone, your other PCs, and the Web?
That’s Dropbox in a nutshell. It’s one of the Web’s most popular services, and with good reason: it makes file and folder sharing ridiculously easy.
A free Dropbox account nets you 2GB of storage space, which is great–but who wouldn’t like just a little more?
Over at Lifehacker, there’s a great tip on how to get a little more. Just sign into your Dropbox account on the Web, then click the Getting Started tab. Complete five of the six listed steps (some or all of which you may already have done) to earn an extra 250MB of storage.
And that’s it! If you don’t already have a Dropbox account, I can’t recommend the service highly enough. In fact, you can get another extra 250MB of storage by signing up with my referral link–meaning you actually stand to get 2.5GB of total space for free. (Yes, I also get a 250MB bonus out of it, but what’s a little nepotism between friend?)
