How to check available space on dropbox

New member | Level 2

How do you find out how much space you have remaining on a BASIC dropbox account?

Seems this is a mystery and not one Dropbox wants people to know how to accomplish. They just want you to buy an account.

Hi there @saintnash!
 
You can check your Dropbox account’s storage (used and available) by navigating to the Plan tab on your Settings:
  1. Sign in to dropbox.com.
  2. Click on your avatar on the top right corner of your screen. 
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Navigate to the Plan tab.
You can also check out this article here for more info.
 
Hope this helped! nerd face

Doesn't work for me, but I found I can "double click" on the avatar and a window opens with the necessary information.

Couold not find the plan tab. When I search for Settings I get a folder called Studiouser. No idea what that is. Inside it shows two files: settings.ini and settings.vst.

Tried double clicking on the Dropbox icon (is that the avatar?). No good.

Hey @PhillipKP, thanks for nudging us on this thread!

To go to the Plan tab for more info on your Dropbox account's storage:

  1. Sign in to your account through the website.
  2. Click on the avatar that's on the top right corner of your screen. Usually, your avatar may be your initials or a picture that you've previously selected.
  3. From the drop-down menu, choose Settings.
  4. Go to the Plan tab

Let me know how it goes!
