Plenty of Space, but Dropbox says not enough space

Plenty of Space, but Dropbox says not enough space

I have 93% of a 1TB, however when I try to move a music folder with about 50 GB, it says there is not enough space.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Do you have enough hard drive space?

i am having the same problem, I do not have enough hard drive space and that was the whole point of getting drop box so that I could free up some space on my hard drive. I have changed the sync preferences but how do I get something to just save to dropbox now?

@Mark MC, I don't have enough space on my computer's HD but I was connected to a 2 TB HD so more than enough space there.

I'm the same.. I have plenty of space as i upgraded to 1TB with Dropbox but when I try and add files from another hard drive. Telling me there is not enough hard drive space. That is why I also upgraded to 1TB..

In this case you should use the Selective Sync feature to save space from your computer - www.dropbox.com/help/175
