I've just received the dreaded mail saying my DropBox is nearly full?

 

1. Does anyone know what % useage triggers this message?

2. I have in the past needed to recover files but cant remember how i did that. Have completely reorganised my files and folders recently I wondered if these counted against my allowance and if so, can they be removed completely?

1) I believe its about 90% of your quota you start getting told. You can see space etc. at www.dropbox.com/account

2) No. deleted and previous versions of files do not use up quota

Thanks Mark. As i feared. Jumping from my current limit to 3TB however does seem mind boggling and expensive. 1 TB at a sensible price would have been seriously considered.
For the 7.99 a month i can buy a 4TB SS external driive and still have cash in hand
