I have been deleting files from my (personal) account, mostly photos, to get below my limit (2.75 GB). I finally did, but now it shows I am over 3GB again. Also, on my recent activity, it shows music files, which I have never had in Dropbox, and when I hover over the little box icon in the bottom bar on my PC, it shows it trying to sync a music file. How do I get it to stop? I don't need or want music files in Dropbox, I have them on Google Drive. When I look at my list of folders in Dropbox, Music is not in there.
yep, that was it. So nice of Dropbox to decide I wanted to backup my whole computer without asking me (sarcasm). I'm sure it has NOTHING to do with wanting to sell me a premium plan.
ETA - just checked, even though I disabled computer backup, it is now on AGAIN. Do I need to restart the PC to get it to take effect?
2nd edit - in Preferences, it is still unchecked (do not backup PC) but again it tried to backup all my music files. Oy vey. I will be looking for an alternative to Dropbox, this is ridiculous and so hard to use.
