  • If you want an extra gigabyte of storage on your Dropbox account, the online cloud service invites you to compete in its second annual “Dropquest” online scavenger hunt.

    It’s a series of logic puzzles that will make you browse around the Web while also learning about the various features and services that Dropbox offers. Anyone who makes it to the end will get an extra gigabyte, but the first person to complete it wins a grand prize package culminating in a 100 GB account, free for life.

    Dropquest Chapter 1

    1. The product of the first two digits is 24.
    2. The fourth digit is half of the second digit.
    3. The sum of the last two digits is the same as the sum of the first and third digits.
    4. The sum of all the digits is 26.
    5. The second digit is greater than the last digit.

    if abcde is the password….

    • a*b=24
    • d=b/2
    • e+d=a+c
    • a+b+c+d+e=26
    • b>e

    Valid solutions are

    1. a=3 b=8 c=6 d=4 e=5
    2. a=1 b=24 c=0 d=12 e=-11
    3. a=2 b=12 c=5 d=6 e=1

    The first one is the only one that create a 5 digits password :-))

    Dropbox is arguably the best known cloud-based file sharing service. It’s available for Windows PCs, Macs, iPhones and Android smartphones. You get 2GB free of charge, but here is a tip to get 5GB more…

    With the service’s latest beta desktop software, Dropbox has added an automatic photo import feature. Plug in a camera or smartphone, and you’ll have the option to automatically import those pictures to your Dropbox account.

    During this beta period, Dropbox is also offering additional free space to test automatic uploading of photos and videos. For every 500MB of photos and videos automatically uploaded, you'll receive another 500MB space bonus, up to 4.5GB total. [Update: To clarify, you can get up to 5GB of free space with this feature, if you count the initial 500MB space for the first photo import].

    As usual, Dropbox strongly recommend making a backup of your Dropbox before upgrading to this build as we'll need a few weeks to be certain of its stability.

    When you are finished, and credited , just remove your freshly uploaded pictures and keep the 5GB of additional storage!
