I wanted to add a shared folder, but received a message telling me I don't have enough free space to do so.
This surprised me because the folder has a size of 2 GB and I have 2 GB of free space - there is nothing else in my account that could take up any space.
My colleagues who were invited to add the same folder & have the 2 GB Basic Dropbox Account just like me had no problems.
How can I fix my problem?
If its saying you dont have enough space simply put you dont have enough space.
Does the error say you need 2 gb of space? If so its badly worded. It means you need 2gb more space - i.e. 4gb.
Have a try at www.dropbox.com/gs to see if you can gain any more free space and then add it

No, the error simply says "There's not enough space." - it isn't mentioned how much more space I would actually need.
The folder has a size of 2 GB and I have 2 GB of free space, but somehow that's not enough.

It cannot be 2gb if you have 2gb. If its even 1byte over the 2gb it will fail and not add.
Ok, I guess I have to try adding a bit of space.
