Inspired by this thread and specifically this post, I did some digging to look for the 50 GB offer from Box.com for Dell advantage customers.

It turns out that the link does NOT seem to be specific to a user, so ANYONE can use it. Besides, they seem to WANT to share with your co-workers and friends. Consider yourselves my friends hug

Simple sharing and collaboration
Mobile app access

- I already signed up on the 25GB promo, can I sign up again?
For those who signed up previously with a gmail account, you can use the multiple gmail aliases trick [makeuseof.com], to sign up again for the 50 GB.

So instead of signing up for youremail@gmail.com, sign up with youremail+anystuffyouwant@gmail.com, and it should sign you up to a new account. Posters have reported this works and some use youremail+box@gmail.com for ease of remembering.

- It seems to require a phone number. Do I have to give my real phone number?
Yes, a phone number is required, and no, it does not have to be a real one.

- Can I merge multiple accounts together?
No, this is not possible. From Box.com's FAQ [box.com]:

Quote :
We currently do not provide account merge functionality, and email address cannot be associated with more than one Box account
Posters HAVE reported being able to share folders from one account to the other, though. This might run into sharing bandwidth issue, though.

This is really sweet, but also made me concerned how long it can remain in business. Wish they do well
Lots of corporations pay for access for their employees. I've run across several clients who use box, so it's not unheard of to have paying customers.

I apparently already had 50GB account from a previous promotion. Nice to see it come up again!

I signed up for the 25GB offer, uploaded about 10 GB and then tried downloading on another computer and at 5GB it told me if I wanted to download anymore I had to sign up for their paid service.

Unless you don't plan on downloading this is a scam to get you to sign up for their paid service.

Beware.
There is a 10 GB bandwidth limit per month.

Wonder if I wait for next week they will bump the offer up to 100GB...
Unlikely. 50GB AFAIK is the largest free account they've given.

How many are folks making...could be useful to have spares and it doesn't cost them much just to have the account on file.

There is a bandwidth limit of 10GB/mo. This means that to fill your space it will take at least 5 months, and if you ever want to get all your content back, it will take another 5 months. I am in since it's free, but this is an interesting limitation...

edit: According to their support site the bandwidth only applies to the public links, so maybe this is a non issue?

If I signed up for a 25gb account can I delete and recreate an account using the same email for the 50gb account so that I can use the same email address?

I see the delete option for accounts but don't know if they allow recreation...

I currently use DropBox on my iPad, but when playing a music cd, after each song I have to click the next song for it to play rather then auto play. Any cloud storage options out their that allows music/audio tracks to auto play? so I dont have to wait for a song to finish and then click next song.
