If I delete files locally, will this be reflected on the cloud & across devices?

New member | Level 2

If I delete a file from dropbox, does it also disappear from my computer or cloud storage? I only use dropbox between my Apple devices. My box is full and I wanted to clear it.

Hey @kshero, quick-fire answer: Yes, → as any content you remove on your account online will also be reflected across your devices Arrows Counter Clock. Similarly, any files/ folders you’ve removed locally on your devices will be mirrored on your account online thus moving temporarily to your Deleted FilesNow if you’re having trouble with your Dropbox storage space, you could check out this resource that details your options to get your account back underquota again. 
 
Hopefully my post answers your question & please do let me know how my pointers work for you on our discussion here. Thanks!
