Hello everyone,,

the constant nagging is like ads, im either gonna find a way to manually block the notification or im just gonna stop using and uninstall dropbox thanks...

Re: Space is almost full notification


Hello @Jinnoy. Thanks for joining to share this feedback. 

I understand how annoying this can be. I am afraid there is no way to stop these notifications. The reason is that the Dropbox website and your desktop app are not syncing when your account is full. 

The system doesn't want you to forget that and believe that you are not syncing due to technical issues. 

All I can suggest is to unlink the desktop application, since it is not syncing anyway. This way you will not see the notification of the Dropbox dektop app.

You can alternatively, remove a shared folder temporarily to drop the space used and then add it back from your sharing tab, when you've earned some free space

Hope this helps. Again, thanks for posting feedback about this. 

Have a nice weekend!
