Volume on cloud is wrong

Volume on cloud is wrong

New member | Level 2

Hello all, 

I have 11,5 Go on my PC but this is reported as 18,5 Go on the Cloud!

I thought that deleted files would disappear and allow reach same volume but this is not the case.

Can someone help me solve this please?

The cloud volume is the accurate one.... so, is Dropbox running on your device? What does it say if you mouse over its icon on the status bar? Do you have any folders not local due to selective sync?
