Hi Jeff,

After contacting me by email the engineering team at Dropbox deleted the problematic folder themselves.

The issue was the huge volume of files in that folder (over 2,500,000). What they said is that the current limitation of the Dropbox desktop application is roughly around 300,000 files. I gave them permisition to remove it, and they did so.

Best,

Serafin
