Problem: there's no easy way to empty your trash.
Solution: add an empty all deleted files button. Please don't make me go through each file individually if I want to empty them.
There really isn't a need for this as deleted files do not take up space in your account. If you really want to delete the files in Deleted Files, you can follow the steps to permanently delete them, about half way down the following help article.
Hi @eyescream, thanks for joining the Community!
Just to confirm here, deleted files do not take up any space on your Dropbox account online.
If for some reason you’re still low on quota, then it’s possible you have a shared folder that is taking up the remainder of your space. You can leave the shared folders using these steps.
If you’re referring to the actual recycle bin on your computer, then that is another matter, since this is an OS feature. You’ll need to periodically delete files from there to free up space, and this would also be unrelated to deletions on the Dropbox site.
Hope this helps to clarify matters!
