Over the last several years, I’ve used Dropbox to not only share and store personal files, but also to organize and safeguard my business. Since I’ve been using it for so many years, I found a way to find out how much Dropbox storage I had left in my account.
What is Dropbox
Dropbox is a file hosting service that you can easily access from your computer, mobile device, or any web browser. The service offers cloud storage, file synchronization, personal cloud, and client software.
How Much Dropbox Space do I Have?
The amount of space you have depends on the plan.
You can check how much storage you have left by going to settings > plan from your Dropbox dashboard.
You can see that I’m using 405.27 GB of 2.02 TB of storage.
How I use Dropbox for my Business
I use Dropbox to backup all of my photos and videos from my phone and DSLR camera. I organize these in folders labeled with the month and year.
To backup my site, I use a WordPress plugin, called UpdraftPlus that synchs with my Dropbox account to backup my site regularly.
When I’m working with a brand or sponsored campaign, I use Dropbox to share content for review. Since the files are usually large, this is a better method than sending content over email.
How Much Does Dropbox Cost?
Dropbox has a basic, free plan that gives 2GB of storage for one user that you can access anywhere. The free plan also includes document scanning, shared folders and links, 3 HelloSign eSignatures per month, passwords, and a 30-day file recovery and version history.
For $9.99/mo, the Dropbox Plus Plan offers all of the above but with 2 TB (2,000 GB) of storage, smart sync, mobile offline folders, priority email support and a few other features.
This is the plan I have.
At $16.99/mo the Family Plan includes pretty much everything from the Plus Plan, but it includes up to six users.
