I recently started a free trial to professional level -- someone wanted to send me some very large files, and did. Knowing that this is not something I want or need to continue, I reverted to a Basic Plan, with is more than enough for my normal needs.
Problem: Dropbox says that I can't use Dropbox because "my Dropbox is full", but I no longer need those large files to be in Dropbox. I can't delete the files because I don't own them.
Question: how can I get my Dropbox to quit recognizing these recently downloaded files, which I don't want to keep, so they won't continue to fill up my available space?
when I click on the ellipsis, the "delete" option is only available for my public folder, which I created
the folders created by other people and shared with me cannot be deleted -- when I click the ellipses, the "delete" option is not available. My impression is that these files belong to someone else, I don't have authority to delete them -- but I do want them out of my Dropbox
