I have a free version of Dropbox, and I haven't changed the uploaded files. I am also invited by others to share their files and I have uploaded onto their folders. Now it seems my account is full and I would like to know - is Dropbox "charging" twice? Because the persons I collaborate with have paid for the space in their folders and I have not changed the content of mine while Dropbox is counting my space as being full? How can this happen otherwise?
Solved! Go to Solution.
So this means Dropbox can charge for the space of each shared folder to each of the members.
Thanks for discussing - I really like to understand. When a file is placed in someones dropbox this takes up certain space on a server. If the file is shared - you are not replicating the file on the server - you just need to put a pointer towards it, allowing someone else to access it (a question of accessability). Please tell me what the difference with Dropbox is? Kind regards,S
