I seem to be using 1 GB of space on my free account, before I purchase a larger size, I want to make sure I know that I am not capturing files and wasting space. I deleted all the files in the drop box and I use Windows 11. I went to go delete the dropbox cache, by searching "This computer" with "%HOMEPATH%\Dropbox\.dropbox.cache" this file doesn't exist. Please advise.

Hi @pklguy0808 

 

Dropbox cache doesnt use up your quota so I'd just leave it alone. 

 

The things which use quota are at www.dropbox.com/home and www.dropbox.com/backups
