Storage space - how to recover some

Storage space - how to recover some

New member | Level 2

Dear DropBoxers,

 

If someone shares a folder with me, will the files THEY upload, deplete MY storage space? Dropbox tells me that I've used 2GB (of 3.3GB) storage - yet I've uploaded very little! If this is the case, can I do anything about it?

 

Many thanks.

 

Richard

Yes.

 

If you no longer need the folder, you can remove the share to reclaim the space in your account.
