ive deleted and permanently deleted files.
the "my account" information still show 2+gb of shared files.
since im still at my limit, how do i get rid of these shared files? i dont need to keep them or keep access to them because theyre all temporary and once i delete them from dropbox, its because i dont need them or to share them anymore...
seems like a money making scheme to me. use it, fill it up, try to delete (and they show deleted in that they dont show anywhere) but keep the account full so PAY for more space...
Solved! Go to Solution.
So does this mean that even shared folders created by someone else actualy eat into your storage? I'm having to deliver projects via drop box and it's telling me my storage is full and I haven't created any of the folders.
Thanks in advance.
Lusil - Can we provide a direct answer to the question, which is the topic header - How to free up space in my DB account?
Where on the DB site is the answer to this fundamental question?
Lusil, our account is completely full. How much of our existing content do we need to delete in order to start freeing up space in our account? How does dropbox notify you when you've made space available? It seems we have to delete quite a bit of content. I'm just trying to understand how much needs to be deleted.
Welcome to our Community and sorry to jump in here @emanuelsf.
While we won't be able to tell exactly how much content you need to delete to make up space on your account, I'd suggest you started by going at your account's plan tab here:
You'll see an overview of your account's quota there along with the space used by shared folders.
I hope this helps and please keep us posted on your progress!
