Re: Dropbox space issue

Why am I getting a notification that my account is getting full now?

New member | Level 2

I am working with a team and they have upgraded Dropbox folder with lot of space. But recently the dropbox is showing me upgrade now. your dropbox is full! 
I am not able to understand what to do. i have been posting the files in the dropbox shared with me( I think so because I can see what changes they make) and I also add my work. but now it is saying my dropbox is full. 
Can anyone help, please?

Re: Dropbox space issue


Hey there @MrinP

Thanks for reaching out to us about this!

Just as @Здравко suggests in the thread they link, shared folders take space in every member's account.

You can find more info about how much storage you have available and how much is being taken up by private/shared content in your Plan tab

From there, you can increase your storageleave shared folders, or/and remove unwanted files from your account. 

Let us know if you have any follow up questions!
