Although there are companies queueing up to offer you free cloud-based storage, sometimes the free offerings just don't provide enough space. Which is why, for the past year or 2, I've been a paying customer of Dropbox. Having used the free 2 GB service and decided that I was happy with it, I took the plunge and subscribed. Which got me 200 GB, for a reasonable $19.99 a month.
With so much competition out there, Dropbox has often been criticized for not increasing its capacities or decreasing its prices. Well, now it seems to have done just that. My 200 GB account has just been upgraded, for free, to 2 TB. That's a tenfold increase! And I was even offered the option to "downgrade" to a mere terabyte of space, for just $9.99 a month. Which I accepted gladly.
So I'm now paying half of what I was ($10 instead of $20), for 5 times the storage (1 TB rather than 0.2 TB). The technology world moves in mysterious ways. So if you currently pay for additional Dropbox space, keep an eye on your account over the next few days as you're probably about to receive a big free upgrade.
