Re: Cant Delete Files

I have files that I want to permanently delete and cant because Dropbox keeps asking me to get permission from the owner to permanently delete this.

He doesn't have it in his drop box anymore.

 

My dropbox is full and useless until I can get rid of these files.

Hi @zipfunk,

Looks like you have mounted a share where you haven't "Can edit" permission. If owner can't grant you such permission, for some reason, the only option left to unmount the particular share. If some parts of the share are needed still, keep a copy. Navigate to shared folder list. Find the share your are talking about and "Remove from Dropbox" through associated ellipsis menu. 😉 Now it's gone and you have free space.

Hope this helps.
