this offer is expired

Much like the title states, you can sign up for 25GB of web storage for free at Box.com. There really isn't much more to it than that except if it's imperative you have some cloud storage -- and who doesn't especially when it's at no cost -- now would be a good time to sign up as we're not quite sure if this is a limited time offer. Some finer details include:

  • 1 User Access
  • 25GB of Web Storage
  • 100MB File Size Limit
  • Mobile App Access

Registration is a simple two-step process and before you know it you'll be backing up photos, videos, music and other important files you might need when not at your computer.

Thanks to BB88 for sharing this one with us.

    • I've been using Box for a while. They used to have free 50GB publicly available, and I've got an account using an email address from personal domain from within which it seems to be allowing me to give my "coworkers" 50GB free storage as well. However, that only works for people with email addresses on the same domain.

    • Thanks OP. Now I have 25GB with Box and 27GB with Skydrive. That's more then enough for my needs.

      I got mine a long time ago now, think it was just a temp promotion. Not sure if anything else like that is still offered

    • They had a similar offer last year with 50GB Storage for Free

    • Ya 50gb was offered by box.net a while back. So I cannot add the 25gb onto the 50gb. Boo.
      The only thing I don't like about box.net is that the file size limit is 100mb.

    • there is no desktop client, so even if you have 50g,it's not so convenient, i think.

      i prefer dropbox with its desktop client, or u just choose skydrive with 7g space or 25 g space for old account

      There is a desktop client. I have it and I'm not a paying customer.

      However I've seen some websites say that's it's only available for some non-paying users, and not all. I'm not sure if that is still true.

      Unfortunately it still has the 100mb file limit.

      I have the desktop client as well. If you register with Mozilla Thunderbird (see https://blog.mozilla.org/thunderbird...release-today/), you get 25 GB plus the desktop sync ability.

      That said though, I personally have found their desktop application to be a bit cumbersome in comparison to Dropbox. It eats up a lot of CPU when syncing - so I'd really only recommend it for syncing small amounts of files. I chose a fairly large folder to sync, and it locked up my CPU at 50% (on a dual-core machine) for pretty much the whole day.

      They are supposed to have some neat applications though, such as an integrated Microsoft Office add-in, but I haven't tried any of them.

    • THanks OP for reminding me that I have a box.com account. It was when I purchased the HP TP that Box.com offered 50GB of free storage. 50GB box + 25GB skydrive is more than enough for any cloud storage.
      While I use Gmail for a lot of things, G Drive is one application I do not use.
      I love Dropbox's simple web interface, and Skydrive's ability to edit Documents, I'm not too sure how convenient is Box.

    • Thanks! First time trying out cloud storage. Is this a permanent thing once I signed up; I get to keep 25gb forever?

    • The only thing I don't like about box.com is that it limits the file size to 100mb for free accounts, otherwise it's perfect

      Well obviously the company could go bankrupt or change the rules. But basically, yes it is permanent.

      Okay cool, that's what I wanted to know. Thought it might be like Dropbox Space Race where the storage is only for 2 years.

      yeah, pretty trash cuz of that 100mb limit.

      Dropbox and Skydrive much better.
