Clearing cache does clear space on iPad

Clearing cache does clear space on iPad

Dropbox is using 50gb of storage, I press the 'clear cache' button, and it's still using 50gb of storage. I have no files available offline.

Uninstall and reinstall the Dropbox app.

Thanks for the response.. I'm not sure that's how it's supposed to work? Seems like a bit of a bit of a cop-out rather than implement something useful?

This is so annoying 

dropbox cache was 23gb - clear cache never works so delete and reinstall- 

cache goes down to zero - 2 hours later it’s 13gb!!!!!!

 

why can’t this be fixed?

I use Dropbox to save space not to fill it up - 

 

PLEASE please fix this!!!!
