As you’ve probably noticed, Dropbox is one of our favorite apps to talk about here on groovyPost. Well, really, I think everyone likes to talk about it. This year, Dropbox is doing something new, and really groovy. The Dropbox team put some great minds together and came up with a very challenging scavenger hunt, and if you complete it you’ll get a free 1GB of Dropbox space forever. But worry not, we have all the answers that will help you get it done in less than a minute.
Step 1 will land you at the Dropquest starting page, here you’ll be told the basics of the scavenger hunt as well as some information regarding some prizes. At this point in the game, all the prizes have already been claimed by people who completed the quest the day it was announced, but you can still get your hands on 1GB of free space.
Spoiler Alert: From here on out, the choice is yours. You can try to complete the quest yourself, or you can use our cheat sheets below!
How To Solve The 2011 Dropbox Quest in 60 Seconds
Mathias Bynens came up with the quickest solution I’ve seen so far. Essentially, he knocks it down to only 16 steps, and you only have to actually do something (besides opening a link) on seven of the said steps. It even solves the intensely difficult sliding puzzle and sudoku for you automatically!
His solution page can be found here. (Visit it for the answers)
Be sure to Click each step and enter every answer. Skipping any of the 16 steps on his page could result in you not getting your full 1GB of space.
