I just "lost" the 25gb that I had gotten from the space race, so I went over my limit, After deleting almost everything from my dropbox, it still says I am well over my limit. It says i am using 12.9 GB of my 2GB, even though there isn't anything close to that size still in my dropbox. I even permanently deleted everything and left all shared folders..
Any ideas? maybe some way to show all files so that I can see what might be causing the problem?
I am having the same problem and have tried many different suggestions and none work. I am only attached to one folder which is way below 2GB. BUT I just saw that they have a ton of files in their trash that are not deleted. I suspect this could count toward my limit. I will report back if deleting that helps.
Re: Dropbox saying it is full even though it is not
My Dropbox folder appeared empty when viewed in Finder (MacOS), but in Dropbox settings it said I was still using 50% of my quota. I followed Mark Mc's advice above, and looked at my Dropbox home page, and there were still files there! I deleted those via the web page, and now I'm back down to 0%. Thanks Mark Mc. (But there must be a bug, since I wasn't able to see those files from the Finder on my Mac).
