is now giving free 25 GB storage to all new users

The free 2GB Dropbox gives you not enough? Free 5GB of Google Drive doesn’t satisfy your hunger? Need more than the free 7GB of Skydrive? Missed out on’s earlier promotion of free 50GB? is here to help. In an attempt to fight off the growing competition, is increasing its free-5GB-for-free-accounts limit to 25GB.

Anyone that signs up for a new account between now and whenever this promotion ends gets free 25GB of storage for life. This account comes with all the perks (and limitations) of regular free accounts such as a file size limit of 100MB and access to mobile (Android, iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, etc.) and desktop applications. It should be noted, however, free accounts are only for non-commercial use only and don’t come with the ability to sync files from your desktop, so if you are looking for these features you should go somewhere else. There also isn’t clear information on if free account contents is encrypted or not: the features page lists “secure transfer” and  “secure storage” as a feature for all accounts, including free accounts, but then prompts you to upgrade to paid accounts for 256-bit encryption.

Update: It looks like has now added the ability to sync files from your desktop for free accounts, despite its website claiming otherwise. Go to “My Account” -> “Get Box Sync” after logging in to download the sync program. Thanks PCbasics!

For those of you with existing accounts, this new promotion seems to be only for new users so either you need to create a new account to take advantage or suck it up.
