Synchronised all my files, but there is still no space on my hard drive

Synchronised all my files, but there is still no space on my hard drive

Hello,

I am using Dropbox for my work and my computer hard drive is advising me that it is low on disk space (only 4 gb remaining out of 120gb)

I have synchronised everything to Dropbox and removed it from my computer, however I am still unable to free up any space

It appears that I have 86 gb worth of something on my computer/hard drive but I have checked my computer, apps, folders, emptied my bin, cleared caches... everything!

Hey @prodoh37; welcome to the Community and happy Monday!

If the app in your system tray/menu bar is showing up to date which means you're fully synced, this space could be taken up by your cache folder.

Could you have a look and let me know if that's the case indeed?

Thanks!
