Just an update - problem solved. I removed most of the folders in my DB to my desktop & the % finally went down. I found that there were a few .dmg & backup files that I hadn't deleted/ missed that were fairly large in size. Mea culpa! I've backed those up & will start using my DB again.
Also, I had sent an email to DB Support, and did hear back Nov. 17th with full, detailed instructions. I'd found them in the Help Centre & had followed them to try to fix my problem. I paste them here for those having this problem:
Thanks, but note that my email notice said my box was "almost full" - right now its at 2.4 gb of 2.5 ... and as mentioned, I deleted more than 100 files, and saw no reduction in space being used
