Why can't I delete files from my account?

Why can't I delete files from my account?

My deleted files keep reappearing in my DropBox, even after I "permanently delete" them. What's up? I want to free up space in my account.

Hi there @Anjoli Roy, let's see what we can do here. 

It sounds like it’s being synced back to your account from a connected device or computer. 

Could you have a look at the version history of some of these files for any additional information?

Let me know what you find and we'll go from there, thanks!
