Part of my space is occupied by a shared folder of another account

I have a question about the amount of space I can use.

I have a free account of 2 GB.

A bridgeclub has it's own account, also of 2GB, 1GB of it is used. The club has shared it's space to me.

Now I discover that I can use only 1 GB of my own space.

Question: is this correct and what can I do to use my 2GB of space.

Yes, that's correct. Shared folders occupy the space of all members of the share.

Unfortunatly it's true.  Pretty wrong in my opinion and I even think unethical.

If my family buys a car, we all use it, we don't all pay the cost of the car, I pay it and share.

At my last company I owned we had 85 staff of which about 50 used drop box, we cancelled out account for this exact reason.  So many other options out there.  Sure, we were small for dropbox with just 50 people, but I hope others see this.  Collectively if everyone drops for this reason they might get it and care about customers.

I do love dropbox, but just takes effort to get by without paying their prices.  I don't mind paying for my own space not others.
