Recently we were talking about the usage of Dropbox in the research project. Since the free disk space is limited it can happen that it is not sufficient for your purposes. For all of you folks looking for more, Dropbox started a tiny competition under universities: Dropbox Space Race. It is necessary to verify your university email address and that’s it. You will gain another webspace depending on the amount of university members who subscribed in the space race. For our university it is already another 8 GB. The bigger schools like MIT or Berkeley already gained the full 25 GB!
We couldn’t find any catch in the space race so far. The only thing which might happen is that you have to leave the beloved recently gained and free web space after the two years. But, to be honest, in 2 years we might not speaking about GB anymore. 25 GB might sound ridiculous then….
