Suggestion - Space notification before there's only 3 gigs left?

Helpful | Level 5

Literally 3gigs left on my system. Because there's no space, DropBox synch cannot resynch the deselected folder.

Would love an ability to know before my computer is about to die. Thank you.

Sadly Dropbox cannot do that @allthethings as it simply has no way of knowing that this is an issue. This information is something your OS would need to provide (i.e. Windows/OSx/Linux etc.)

Cheers. Thank you @Mark. Grateful for your time and answer.

 

I do get a DB "whoa there!" notification once it's basically too late, though. I'm not a dev but I'm not r/oldpeopleonfacebook either.

 

I would ask how does it know when I'm at 3gigs? Why could that not be adjusted to another number?
