My space on Dropbox finished, but I can see shared files everytime my friend add them. How it is possible?

Hi Giada

Do you mean that you ran out of space on your account but still see updates from your colleague's shared folder? If you're out of space your files won't sync anymore until you free up space. 

Not sure what's the actual issue you're trying to find a solution for?

Thank you!

I removed some files from my Dropbox but what can I do to stop the automatical sync between my phone and Dropbox? Because every photo that I take is sent to my dropbox and in this way it will be full again
