DropBox doesn't work at all

DropBox doesn't work at all

New member | Level 2

I installed the basic Dropbox and it is brain dead.

1) I don't want DB to sync my whole computer just certain folders, my husbands account doesn't sync at all which is what I want. 

2) Dropbox started syncing and now says I am out of space.... not possible. 1T of DB and only 500GB of HD which only 300 GB is used. 

3) Either someone can help or I will delete the account and go somewhere else that is not trying cheat me, $10 a month is ridiculous when my apple drive is free. Posting on twitter etc shortly, liars and cheats need to be exposed.

Re: DropBox doesn't work at all


Hey @kpaar, thanks for posting and sorry to hear you're having issues with this.


It sounds like you have enabled the computer backup feature, when you installed the Dropbox app on your computer. 


Could you take a look at this Help Center article and let me know if that's the case? 


When it comes to your second concern, could you please elaborate a bit, so I have a clear view of the issue?


Let me know what you find!
