Dropbox for Free

Italiabella used Ask the Experts™
Hello Everyone,

I can't find the proper link to create a new drop box account and get the 20GB of free space.
Every link i found they ask to pay. Does anyone have the link i need to open a drop box account for free please ?

Thank you,

Hi Italiabella,
The free version is called Dropbox Basic and it has just 2GB, not 20GB. Download the installer from here:

I haven't done this in a while, and they may have changed it since I last did it, so I don't know exactly what's going to happen when you run the installer, but just follow the prompts and select the Basic edition when given the choice. Regards, Joe

Joe has right.
Free Dropbox offer only 2 GB space.
If you need more you need to pay for it

They've never offered 20 GB for free to normal users, but you can get up to 16 GB free if you refer people to the service.  https://www.dropbox.com/help/54

There was a time when college (.edu) addresses could win a college cup and get 25 GB for free, but you needed a college email address and it was only good for 2 years. https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/9131


THank you everyone. I swear i saw somewhere the comparison between dropbox and google drive and they wee saying drop box 20Gb.

for what this lady need to do 2GB is more than enough. Thank you.
