Dropbox full message but 5% used

Account plan states I have 53 MB of shared files and 2 GB of personal files. I never used Dropbox til recently, receiving the 53 MB of shared files. 
So what and where are the 2 GB of personal files? They were not (knowingly) created by or visible to me!

Hey @terry2t! Thanks for sharing your concern. 

The only thing I can think of, is that maybe you had your camera uploads feature on without realizing. This feature uploads the camera photos automatically to your Dropbox account.(?)

What do you see when you visit your files page on 

Do you recognise any of the files there? 

You can check your events page to see how and when these files got uploaded. 

Let me know what you find. I hope this was helpful.
