If I use the check the size of all of the files in my dropbox folder using my Mac's command-I info, it shows I have ~ 1.2 GB of space usage. I confirmed this by looking at the various files. In contrast, the dropbox app shows that I am using more than 6 GB of filespace. Any ideas why dropbox gets this wrong and how to fix this issue?
No iphoto folders and I'm not using Selective sync. Not sure how to trouble shoot. I could just remove all the files from dropbox. Is there then an option to 'reformat' your allotted space, or to see any remaining files?
I'm also having the same issue: WinDirStat shows Dropbox space usage 5.6GB and Dropbox app/web UI says 35.8GB space usage.
It looks like Dropbox is wasting (?) 30GB of space. That's quite a lot.
Same here. 4.7GB on the PC, 10.6Gb in the cloud. Nothing in my .dropbox.cache on the local machine. Is there a similar folder in the cloud that I can't see via the web browser?
Tony B. - Where is the .Trash folder?
I am in the same boat. Locally, the files in a folder I have are no more than 1GB. Dropbox shows it as 6 GB.
Hi Victor A. I'm using encfs, the .trash folder appeared in the mounted drive.
