The .dropbox.cache folder is a hidden folder and won't be visible unless you have your operating system set to show hidden files.

 

Also, there's usually no need to clear this folder. Dropbox uses this folder to store chunks of files as they're syncing and as a way to be able to recover files you've deleted (for a short time, anyway). Dropbox manages the folder on its own.

thanks for replying, I've already unhide the folder and tried to delete it because I gave everything sync online but my Mac 250GB storage still full, and now it's such in the recycling been
