Hard Drive Full Message

Hard Drive Full Message

I an getting a Hard drive full message "referring to my local drive" I know.  When i go into my disk management tool my local 2TB dedicated drive has over 1TB of open/unused space one it.  I have uninstalled the local drop box app and reinstalled and after about 80% of syncing I get the same message again,  Thinking it was my hard drive I installed a new drive and formatted and still get the same message. I also am only using 15% of my total Drop Box storage so i know its not that.  Any Idea?

Do you have multiple drives on your machine?

Is your drive with programs on not full? 

Dropbox has a local cache folder inside your 'AppData' folder (usually C:) where everything downloads before it moves it over to the actual Dropbox folder.
