deleting shared files from my dropbox only

deleting shared files from my dropbox only

I have a free account.

 

My dropbox is at its limit. I want to delete files to make more room.
But all my files have also been shared with other people, and it looks
like if I delete a file the other people will also not be able to
access it. For some files, the delete option is grayed out.

How do I delete the files just from my dropbox?

How do I delete a file if the delete option is grayed out?

You can remove the shared folder(s) from your account.
