Hi there,
To clear up space in your Dropbox, simply drag files out of your Dropbox folder (or delete files from your Dropbox app on your device). Please note however that if you delete files from your mobile device, they will also be deleted from the Dropbox website and any other connected devices.
I hope this information helps! Please let me know if you need anything else.

I've tried to drag files from my Dropbox to a thumbdrive and all it copies is a blank icon. The files of images remain. The only way I've found so far to remove the files is to open each folder and then copy individual images one by one, which is very time consuming. There must be a better way. Anybody know?

Thomas's information is based upon your having installed the desktop client. 

If you are using the website you need to click on the files or highlight them and select Download
