Getting back to using Dropbox for free

Getting back to using Dropbox for free

I was sharing videos with colleagues and signed up for monthly payments to dropbox.  However, that project is over.  I want to go back to free dropbox with less storage space.  How do I do that?  

 

Also, how can I tell how much total memory my files are taking up?

You can see how much space you're using on your Account page. To downgrade your account, use the following link:

 

The downgrade page will also show you how much have, how much you will have if you downgrade, and how much space your files are using. If you're over quota after downgrading, syncing will stop until you're back below quota.

Thanks.  I was able to see my total memory useage by going into the account.  I see that I have over 2GB memory, but I cannot see how much each file is using.  Can you advise me as to how I do that?  Also I suspect that the reason I have over 2GB is that the videos are still being counted, because it said I could reload them after I deleted them.  Is there some way to totally expel them from my list and thus clear out that memory load?

Click the Members column header a few times to cycle between multiple options, including Size.

If you've already deleted them, they're no longer counted in your data usage. Deleted files, even those that can be recovered, do not count against your quota.
