Level 2

I have a capacity of 1TB but only 32GB appears on my computer

What exactly are you referring to?

Dropbox doesn't extend the capacity of your computer. You have 1TB of available storage in your Dropbox account online, but this doesn't mean your computer will have an additional 1TB of available storage.

Dropbox is a file syncing service, meant to keep a copy of everything you store in your local Dropbox folder in-sync with the copy of the same files stored in your account online. It is not a cloud-based folder or drive where the content only exists online.
