Dropbox Nearly Full Message

Dropbox Nearly Full Message

I opened an account today and created a first folder, nothing in it yet. I am now getting a message saying it is almost full. I am guessing it is because I ticked a box on set-up that said I could back-up my PC files or something. How do I change this setting and empty my Dropbox?

Hey @Glendevon-2012, let's see what we can do here. 

It sounds like you enabled computer backup, which adds computer folders (like Documents and Downloads) to your Dropbox folder. 

You can turn it off and move the files back to where they originally where, by following the steps mentioned in this article

Give it a go and let us know if you have any trouble along the way, thanks!
