Dropbox Dropquest 2011 Guide - Free space for Dropbox

Dropbox had a Dropquest going on earlier tonight with some nice prices, but you can still get some free space, just by completing the guide, you will get at least 1gb.

For the really lazy, you actually only need enter the pages with dropquest2011 in their URL and it should add space to your account, though you still need to enter codes and solve the puzzles, but that’s easy when the answers are in the guide below. Also note you can’t skip any of the dropquest pages, they unlocks as you progress.
