I've talked with two different people at Dropbox who, althought they were nice, couldn't help me. I use the Basic plan and add files, then delete them to maintain adequate storage. Until now. I've tried deleting files, unsharing files, and nothing changes in my storage account which, as you can imagine, is near the limit. Constantly getting notes from Dropbox to upgrade. But why would I do that when they have done something to make the previous way of using it unworkable. My question is:
- why when I "unshare" files does it "Add" to my storage space?
- why when I "delete" files are they not removed from my storage space?
- who can I talk with at Dropbox to address this? They won't transfer me to technical support because I'm using the basic plan. Althought I do introduce almost 200 students to dropbox each year at the University where I teach.
Any help would be appreciated before I drop - Dropbox - and move to another service for University students.
I just typed a long message explaining what is going on in my dropbox and before I could hit the "post" it disapeared. Bottom line, I can't copy and paste anything here (screen shots) I can't upload a word document with copies of screen shots showing the dropbox account. I can't get anyone to tell me why my account is stuck at 8.677 GB of 9.25 GB. Doesn't matter if I permanently delete files, unshare files, nothing chanes my space account. Something is wrong, no one at Dropbox wants to tell me how to fix it, so I'm frustrated and ready to move on from this app. I've used it for 8-9 year introducing 150-200 students a year to dropbox and this is the thanks I get. I give up. All I get is notes from Dropbox saying "your account is almost full". Yah, I know that, and you won't help me find out why. John
Someone at dropbox asked me to send them a screen shot of my dropbox issue. Didn't provide an email account. Ok, how do you do that? I tried dragging and dropping here, uploading a word document here. Nothing! Wouldn't take anyting. This response box is useless.
