I had a very nice surprise email this morning from Dropbox notifying me that they doubled the sized of my Pro Account storage. It may be a promotion from them to have solicit your friends and family to join up for a Dropbox Pro account but that’s fine with me. So now the Pro Account gives you a base of 100GB’s storage which will help me out quite well.
You can get a 3 month free subscription to a Pro Account as well for up to 3 friends by submitting their email to Dropbox for an invitation for the service. The Pro Account is now available in 100, 200, or 500GB Plans at $9.99, $19.99 or $49.99 respectively. You can also add on their Packrat Plan for $39/year that gives you unlimited undo history. Packrat Safeguards files you delete in case you need to undelete them and Saves old versions of files in case you need to view them later. Dropbox's "Packrat" feature keeps an unlimited number of these deleted files and old versions. So if you are putting things up for long term storage or you are constantly editing documents that you may want to go back to earlier versions, this could be a very important addition to your plan purchase.
The free plan is still available and provides you with 2GB’s of storage and you can increase that up to 18GB’s for each referral you provide them. They allocate 500MB’s for each referral.
Dropbox’s third option is Dropbox for Teams. Get dedicated phone support and as much space as you need for your team, starting at 1000 GB. Manage licenses as your team grows, and monitor activity and storage usage per person. Get a single centralized bill for your team. Your files are accessible from any device (Mac, Windows, Linux, Android, iOS, and BlackBerry) and synced to your computer so you can work both online and offline! Share and collaborate instantly with your team or keep certain files private. Send large files to clients and partners with a link — even if they don't use Dropbox! Get more information here.
Dropbox for Teams starts at 5 users with 1TB of storage allocated for the group. It also includes Unlimited version history, phone support and administrative tools.Priced at $795/year each additional user costs just $125/year and adds another 200GB’s to the pool of storage. Compared to an equivalent Dropbox Pro account this is quite a savings.
