With the Dropbox iPhone app, the convenience of having your files at your fingertips is helpful when you’re on-the-go; however, there may come a point in time when you use up the space limits. While the basic features of Dropbox are free, a free account user does not have the almost unlimited storage space that Dropbox gives its paying customers.
The free account limit extends not only to computer users of the service but also to the mobile users. That is why Dropbox does give its users the ability to check on storage space with these simple steps:
- Unlock your iPhone and launch the Dropbox app.
- Log in to your Dropbox account.
- Click on the ‘Gear’ icon which can be found on the bottom-right corner of the screen. You should see a screen that shows your account information.
- Now on the ‘Account’ panel just below the ‘email’, you will see the ‘Space used’ so that you’ll know how much space is left.
Other things you need to know:
Keeping an eye on how much storage space you have is important especially when considering the Dropbox app for backup storage service.
However, if you ever need more storage space, then you can consider upgrading to a premier account or you can also download your files directly to your iPhone and delete them on your Dropbox account
