Need more space?

Dropbox Business equips you and your team with the space you need to get work done. The exact amount of space available depends on your plan:

  • Standard plan: 2 TB of total space, shared between the members of your team
  • Advanced plan: As much space as your team needs
  • Enterprise plan: As much space as your team needs

For Advanced and Enterprise plans: If you near your storage limit, we can work with you to accommodate your needs. Team admins can contact us through the admin console to discuss additional storage. If you're a member of a team, ask your team admin to contact us on your behalf.

Some information on file numbers and account performance

The performance of the Dropbox application can decline if you have more than 300,000 files. This is a soft limit and depends highly on the hardware specifications of the computer running the Dropbox application. Some customers are able to have more files without issue. As a hard rule, we recommend never having more than 1 million files on any single computer.

If this appears to be causing syncing issues, you can use Selective Sync to select only certain files to sync to your computer, but still have them on the Dropbox website and on other computers.
