Dropbox showing different used space on client and website

Dropbox showing different used space on client and website

Portnawak
Helpful | Level 6

Hello,

I've noticed a strange thing : on the Dropbox client it says used space is 3,6 Go / 3,4 Go (yes, more used than should be).

On the website it says 2,38 Go / 3,38 Go. It's more or less the size if the Dropbox folder on my computer, so I tend to think it's the right size.

 

Does anybody understand why there's such a difference?

Hello there @Portnawak, thanks for posting on our Community!

Can you please let me know if you've rebooted your computer since you first noticed that discrepancy?

Hi @Walter , I had rebooted once before I posted here, but this morning after another reboot the problem seems to have been solved.

Just a strange glitch.

Thanks for your time.
