    Hi!

    I'm a non-paying user with 12 GB (from your previous referral program). If I send the message, will be 16 GB or 6 GB? I would not enjoy loss my data for a mistake!

    Anyway, by the end of the year I'll buy my first paid subscription, I think your service is the best (although I miss the mobile upload).

  3. Andy D says:

    Oh guys, if only you could fix the 24 hours it used to take to think when setting up on a fresh computer, i'd be back with you guys and leave dropbox….

  4. Daiquiri says:

    Oh crap, non-paying user here and lost all my referals! :-((( now I 'only' have 6GB

  5. Jovan Washington says:

    @Ramen – You will have 16. We think you are the best :)

    @Andy – Sorry about that. Email us and clarify and we'll see how we can win you over!

    @Daiquiri – Not sure if you have mailed in, however, I will fix it for you, no problem!

    Thanks everyone!

  7. Thomas says:

    Why thanks ! really appreciated offer. You're definitively the bests ! Keep up the good work !

  8. Honza says:

    How much I'll get if I have 6 GB?

  9. Nate P says:

    You guys are awesome! I actually just switched back to SpiderOak from Wuala because of issues Wuala had with syncing my Eclipse workspaces. For whatever reason it has issues with backing up folders with very frequently updated folders/files so it was constantly overwriting my recent changes in my projects.

    SpiderOak has always worked flawlessly with my Eclipse workspaces, and my project changes always get synced between computers without a hitch. Keep up the great work!

  10. Zoose says:

    Thank you for this. It is appreciated.

  11. artoor says:

    At present I have 13GB… it means that i will have 17GB if everything goes well. Nice :)

  12. Thanks says:

    Great and Thanks, new customer here :)

  13. pjrobar says:

    There is an error in your directions for non-paying existing users. After clicking on the "Buy More Space" button there is no option to change the account type. You need to remove this line from the directions: "Once on the Account Details page, you will select "Change" under Account Type."

    Thanks for the additional space.

  14. artoor says:

    Thanks a lot!
    Looking forward to next promo… if only I could get another 8GB I'll resign from my dropbox account where I got 24,8GB ;)

  15. Thanks2 says:

    Thanks for the extra 4gb, it finally pushed me to setup a pay account!
