Deleting files

New member | Level 2

I have been trying to delete some files to free up space.  I have deleted them several times, but when I log back in, I get a message that I have no more space.

Can someone please tell me how to delete these files for good???


Thank you

Re: Deleting files

Hi @souther67, thanks for joining the Dropbox Community!

Is the message you're getting about Dropbox space or perhaps hard drive space? And is it a banner when you sign in, or an email?

Can you check the plan tab in your account settings, to see how much space you're using?

Let me know what you find!
