If you’re a student or faculty member (or still have an active .edu email account) now’s the time to cash in on some free cloud storage courtesy of Dropbox’s Great Space Race.

Just by linking your .edu address with your Dropbox account you’ll get an extra 3GB of storage for the next two years. The more people from your school that sign up, the higher the total climbs–up to an extra 25GB for two years. The Space Race lasts for the next eight weeks, you can read more about the details here or just jump to the signup page at the link below.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    But, I already linked my .edu account so it doesn’t work…

    Does anyone know why you lose any earned extra space if you re-install windows and therefore re-install dropbox?

    Our school (KUL) is at 8110 points. That’s 15GB for two years =]
