Dropbox space on hard drive

Dropbox space on hard drive

So if Dropbox folders take up space on my hard drive, what is the use of buying 2 TB of space, which I just did?

Hey @Judy F.2, thanks for your post!

This is just the usability of the Dropbox desktop application and it's to help you access and work on your Dropbox files even if your computer is not connected to the internet.

You're still utilizing the 2 TB of Dropbox space and if you don't want your Dropbox files taking up hard drive space, you can use Smart sync or selective sync to free it up.

Let me know if you have any more questions!
