Dropbox: unlimited file size
Dropbox popularized cloud storage. However, the company has reduced the free space available to users by offering only 2 GB for users who download files in the free package.

If we do it via the browser on Dropbox.com, the limit is 50 GB. If we download them via their API, the files can not exceed 350 GB. To download files of this size, it is obvious that you must have a larger storage account, because with the free 2GB, we can only download files up to 2GB.
