Thanks to everyone who participated in this week’s giveaway. We’ve randomly chosen one lucky winner to receive $100 of Dropbox credit to be applied to their current or soon-to-be Dropbox account. Congratulations Benjamin Charity!

Benjamin’s favorite tip:

This one might seem uber basic, but it doesn’t get any better than using dropbox and growl together. When working on a team project where several people are working from the sane shared dropbox folder, growl notifies you each time a file has been updated. When working in separate locations this can be a big productivity boost as you see others are hard at work too.
