Dropbox Ups Storage Space in Pro Account to 1 TB

Finder001.pngDropbox has announced new features in its Dropbox Pro accounts, including an increase from 100 GB to 1 TB storage, passwords for shared links, expirations for shared links, and permissions for shared folders to make them read-only. Another great feature is a remote wipe tool, that lets you wipe a lost or stolen device that has a Dropbox folder on it.

Finder002.pngFor $10 – or £8 – a month, this is a bargain. I’d long resisted upgrading for the free Dropbox plan to the pro, since I had earned so much bonus space. But I found myself recently needing to cull some of the stuff in my Dropbox folder because space was getting tight. I’m happy to now have more room, and to be able to back up more files to Dropbox as well. (I use it to back up some of my documents nightly.) If I had more bandwidth, I’d even back up my music collection there…

So, if you’ve been on the fence, this new price drop might make you change your mind, as it did me. If you don’t have a Dropbox account – if there are any people left who don’t – get a a free 2 GB Dropbox account now.
