how to remove the data (files) from drop box?

Explorer | Level 4

I have the basic non paid version of Drop box (2 Giga).

I want to log in my account every week and check if I have the files I want (the latest files regarding my website, for example)

What should I do to have access to all the files and next remove them all to empty my Drop Box?

 

Thanx for your answer.

Hey @magda2, I'd be happy to help out!

 

Any files you upload to your account will be available via the website, desktop app, and mobile app. 

 

This is due to syncing, which makes sure that you have the most up-to-date version of your files on the website and any connected device. 

 

If you want to delete your files, you can do so by following these steps

 

Out of curiosity, would you like to remove your files from your Dropbox account with one click? 

 

Give me a shout whenever you have the chance to check this out, thanks!

Hi @magda2, if you have the Dropbox desktop application installed, deleting the files in Explorer/Finder will delete them from the site as well once the changes have synced across. 

 

It isn't possible to immediately empty your account with a single click.
