    It's browser based only- no Mac OS/Windows client, which is rather inconvenient. Wish they'd change it.


    And BTW, the limit on free space for Dropbox is something like 16.6GB.

    Really? I only got 2 GB when I signed up, and the only upgrade option in the app is Dropbox Pro 50 which is 100 bucks.

    How can I up the free storage?

    You can get up to 10GB free on Dropbox by referring friends. You can generate referral URLs in your web based account settings (I have 4.5GB free right now).

    I am totally getting the 50GB box.net account. 40Gb will be used immediately to back up my iPhoto library. The other 10GB I'm not sure yet, but im sure it will come in handy!

    With this space, iCloud, and iTunes Match I will officially have my backup needs completed in the cloud.

    I'll still keep a hard copy on blu ray and update once a year though, just in case.

    If you go on Dropbox's website they have like 750 MB or 1GB worth of free bonuses (liking them on Facebook, following them on Twitter, tweeting about them, etc.).

    For each friend referral you get (person has to install Dropbox, sign up, and sign in from a computer that your Dropbox account has never been logged into) you get 250 MB per referral. If you add an @edu email address to your Dropbox account all of your bonuses (and referrals) are doubled, so referrals count for 500 MB of free space each. I think you can have something like 15 referrals.

    The offer for the lifetime 50 GB lasts for 50 days. The lifetime 50 GB lasts... well, you get the idea.
