Get 25GB cloud storage + sync FREE from ‘Box’


You may not have heard of Box, I hadn’t until I recently read about this free offer. Box is a cloud storage/sync service, similar in nature to Dropbox. Box is currently offering 25GB storage for free, the normal free quota is 5GB. File sizes are however limited to maximum 100MB.

  • *This offer is for personal use only
  • *I could not locate any information about how long this offer will be available.

Here’s a little information taken directly from the Box site:

    • What makes you think that Tom? The promotion page is still live. I’ve just gone through the account setup process myself to check, received an email to “verify” the account within about 30 seconds, logged on and there was 25GB!!

      **At the time of posting this comment, this offer is still available.

      • Dave, Just went back in and checked.

  1. Box Sync doesn’t seem to work with Windows XP. Error message: Box Sync ran into an error while starting. Please contact support for assistance. Uninstalled and reintalled two times, still does not work. Maybe it just doesn’t work with XP.

  2. Hi Jim,

    Every time I try to connect to ‘The Box’. both Internet Explorer and Firefox give me a security warning for the website. I can bypass the warning if I’m sure it’s secure. Why would I be getting this warning? It doesn’t seem to happen to other users.

    • No idea Richard. What sort of security warning? What does it say?

      The site is rated Green (safe) by all leading site advisory services. I receive zero warnings from either Firefox or Internet Explorer.

      All indications are that ‘Box’ and its services are perfectly safe.
