I am not sure about the dropbox question, but I have had a 4GB usb drive from when i first started college and was taking my early programming classes (mostly did C# and C++) along with a lot of other papers from general classes.
The files I have saved range from word documents with code pasted onto them to visual studio projects/assignments I had.
That drive is still only half full with 2 years of early programming classes. I only recently (4 months back) got a 16 GB flash drive to use for my more game design heavy classes, and that thing is now half full with only 1 class. This includes Texture Packs, scripts, code, game levels, models, UV Maps, flash files... so it's huge. I will probably get an external HD for myself in the future.
So, I want to believe 2 GB would suffice if you only back up necessary school work and such. 2 GB doesn't seem like much, but it has lasted me.
