Space after deleting

New member | Level 2

Hello!

I have a dropbox synced folder om my Mac. And today it stopped syncing because I reached my Gb limit. 
So I went there and deleted some files I dont need anymore. My dropbox folder on my Mac is now 7 Gbs lighter, but my dropbox on server is still full, since it has stoped syncing.

What should I do? 
Thank you very much!

Restart the Dropbox client or reboot your computer, so Dropbox will re-index your files. Failing that, delete the files from the Dropbox website.
