My C drive was getting full and a synced Dropbox to online only. Howeverm, even after couple of days and couple of reboots, it still shows 180 GB occupied space. 

 

Any chance someone can assist on this?

Hello @davork, I'd be happy to help with this!

 

The first step is to check what the current syncing status of the desktop app is.

 

You can do that by simply hovering over or clicking on the Dropbox icon that's on your system tray. 

 

Could you also have a look at the syncing icons on your files?

 

Are they a grey icon with a white cloud or a green icon with a white tick?

 

Give me a nudge whenever you have any updates on this!
