total destruction of files?

Jamie Be
Explorer | Level 3

I have used dropbox as a holding place for new tracks to be added to iTunes on a mac.i have now reached my 2gb limit and so I want to delete these tracks from dropbox. BUT it tells me if I do that then all tracks will be removed from all devices - I don't want that so what can I do? Most of the tracks are not in iCloud.Please help me regards James

Hey @Jamie Be; welcome to our Community and happy Friday!

To cut things short, this message refers to deleting the file(s) from your Dropbox account and any devices you've linked to it, not your computer's hard drive or other places you may have stored those files. 

I hope this clears things up and please let us know if you have any other questions!
