I am a free user and have 28.75 GB of storage space right now.  Dropbox has messaged me that tomorrow 25 GB will "expire" and be removed.  I have 2.88 GB of regular file space used.  Will Dropbox remove any of my files/folders?  I should have 0.87GB of space remaining....right?  I have had this Dropbox for many years with minimal usage lately, so I really don't want to pay the prices to Dropbox.  Suggestions?

No, Dropbox will not delete any files. If you end up over your storage quota, syncing would just stop until you either upgrade for more space or remove enough files to get back below your quota.
