Deleting multiple files

Deleting multiple files

New member | Level 2

Hi all,


I am currently syncing my old computer with dropbox and the whole space (2TB) was filled overnight with all the music I used to listen to as a teen.

I have been trying to delete multiple files on dropbox but have not been able to.

How can I make space / delete multiple files on dropbox? Can anyone provide screenshot?

Extremly frustrating as i need to save multiple folders from another computer that will not be mine anymore in less than 2 days.. 


Thanks a lot for your help,

Hi @Paulmax,

You can delete all files you want on your old computer as you would do in any other case or if you got in overquota select the files you want and then select "Delete" from ellipsis menu (right pane in your web browser:disappointed face:


Hope this helps.
