Just posted a news about dropbox beta :
Get more Space Now !!! Move Move Move !!
And here, follow these and you’ll be fine and save yourself whole lot of uploading!

must connect in mass storage mode or just plug microsd card ( usb reader and external hard drive does work as long as you keep proper folder structure dcim/camera). allow import to complete then in dropbox client ‘pause syncing’. go to dropbox ‘camera uploads’ folder and delete files. again in dropbox client ‘resume syncing’ and thats it.
you just maxed 5GB without wasting all that time and bandwith!
note:you must have at least 4.5GB in pics and videos plus that one initial picture
another note: your maximum in pics and videos you want to import can not be greater than total dropbox ammount available to you or it will fail to sync properly. so best keep it around 5 just in case.

Got my extra 5GB already. Swhueet. My only worry is if Dropbox catch on; which they will. What will they do about it? Could they track who has been given large amounts of space, but not made any real difference in space in their online accounts? Could easily take the space back off us.
