    I have a “Pro” subscription, for which I pay $20 a month. It entitles me to 15GB of storage. I’m hoping Box will grandfather me in and let me enjoy 500GB of storage while continuing to pay just $20 as a single user. Does anyone know? I can’t believe they’d squeeze me out, forcing me to choose between a too-small free plan and too-rich-for-my-blood business account.

      If you currently have a pro account, your storage will be upgraded to 50GB free of charge. This should happen by the end of November – we’re currently migrating all of our accounts to the new storage allocations. If you don’t see this upgrade, feel free to email me directly at, I’ll be sure you’re taken care of. Thanks for using Box!

    with bigger disk capacity every year, the economics changes in favor of online storage company, cheaper & larger disk means less servers -> less space -> less power -> less hosting fee = much lower cost.
