Dropbox's Dropquest 2012 begins; at least 1 GB of space

Dropbox is always coming up with ways to give its users more space on its cloud storage service. Today, the company is launching its annual Dropquest event. As Dropbox's blog states: "Dropquest is a multi-step scavenger hunt that has you solve a series of puzzles (inspired by the likes of MIT’s Mystery Hunt or Notpron [though not nearly as time/effort-consuming])."

The Dropquest event starts at this link, although before you start you might want to download the company's PC desktop client, because a number of the puzzles take place within a user's own Dropbox account.

The nice thing is that everyone who enters and completes Dropquest 2012 will be able to get an extra 1 GB of space on their Dropbox account. The person who completes all the puzzles first will get 100 GB of free storage space for life, along with some other nice Dropbox swag.  10 second place finishers will get 20 GB of free space for life, 15 third place finishers will get 5 GB for life and 50 fourth place finishers will get an extra 2 GB of space.

One more thing: Dropbox claims that this year's Dropquest will be hard, saying, "Last year Dropquest was finished in a little under 2 hours, but the Black-ops team doubts that it’ll be solved in under 5 hours this year — feel free to prove us wrong."
