Confused re deleting and restoring files on Dropbox website - HELP!

Explorer | Level 3

Earlier I deleted about 900+ photos, emptying folders and deleting them also. Later, I accidentally restored those pictures and folders. How do I re-delete them?

Hi Beth, if the files have been restored, you can just delete them from the website again like when they were originally deleted.
 
Currently it’s only possible to recover deleted files from the Dropbox site, and not delete those restored files.
 
Hope this clarifies matters!

I am deleting all the pictures that I do not need, which should be about 1-2 thousand pics.  Will that free up some space to add more pics?

Assuming each image is approximately 1 MB each (and this can vary wildly depending on the size and quality of the image), this could be from 1 GB to 2 GB of space freed up.
 
This is only a guess at how much you’re going to earn when the images are deleted, since no two images are alike, but it will definitely free up some space on your account.
