Step by step I created on how to maximize free Dropbox storage space.
1) Get referred by a current user - 2.25GB otherwise 2GB if you are NOT referred 2) Complete this Dropquest (stated to end in 2 weeks ie. 1/29/2011) at http://forums.dropbox.com/topic.php?id=30339 - 1GB 3) Complete at least 5 of 6 easy getting started tutorial steps at https://www.dropbox.com/gs - 250MB 4) Complete the tasks at https://www.dropbox.com/free 4a) Connect your Twitter account with Dropbox - 128MB 4b) Connect your Facebook account with Dropbox - 128MB 4c) Follow @Dropbox on Twitter - 128MB 4d) Send a one line comment about why you love Dropbox - 128MB 4e) Tweet about Dropbox for more free space! - 128MB 5) Refer new users who register AND install the Dropbox desktop client - 250MB per referral up to 8GB 6) Link your account to a .edu email address at https://www.dropbox.com/edu - doubles storage referral bonus (retroactively as well) to 500MB per referral up to 16GB

is there a way to trick the referral bonus?

Thanks for the .edu link! I did not know that was there!
For those familiar with this site/program: is the program required to download from the dropbox server as well? or only to upload?
You can download and upload files/folders without the program, but having the program installed will allow you to drag and drop as well as allowing updated files to be uploaded automatically in the background (which is the best feature).

I'd never go through that on my own. Thanks for the hints. The puzzle took me the longest since I had to figure it out myself.

Why not just use box.net? You get 5GB of free space. No games.
