The plan starts at just 2GB of storage capacity, but an additional 500MB are added for each referral the user brings to Dropbox.

Deleting My Account: Step By Step
If your account with Dropbox is paid, you’ll need to cancel that service before you can delete your Dropbox account. To cancel a paid subscription, simply log in to your account and click the Upgrade button. You are downgrading, but the Upgrade button handles both upgrades and downgrades. Choose the plan connected with the account you want to delete and downgrade the service to FREE.
After downgrading your account, visit https://www.dropbox.com/login?cont=https%3A//www.dropbox.com/account/delete. If you have a free account and you did not need to downgrade, simply click the link and sign in to your account to delete. Follow the instructions to finalize the account cancellation.
If there is a problem with your account, Dropbox suggests contacting the customer service department to report the problem before you delete your Dropbox account. You can contact the support department through the help page at https://www.dropbox.com/ticket.
Dropbox collects personal information you provide in addition to non-personal information like the IP address of your computer and information about how and when you use Dropbox. Your personal files, however, are completely safe and not accessed at any time by Dropbox. Cookies are downloaded to your personal computer to ease the log in process and site functions.
Is There A Cancellation Fee?
If you paid in advance for a one-year subscription to Dropbox you will not receive a refund for the money paid on the account. Any changes take place after the conclusion of the current term, according to Dropbox. However, there is no cancellation fee per se.
If you choose to downgrade from a larger plan to a smaller plan and you have too many files for the smaller plan none of the files will be deleted. However, you will not be able to add more files to your Dropbox account.
