Hello @Zarcom, thanks for reaching out to us on the Dropbox Community. 

 

Already deleted files don't take up space on your Dropbox account. 

 

You can have a look at your Plan tab for more details on how much quota is available and what is taking up storage.

 

From there, you can decide whether you want to:

  • Leave any shared folders that put you over quota.
  • Remove unwanted regular content. 

Let me know how it goes or if you have any other questions, cheers!
