Missing Storage Space

I don't have any files in my personal Dropbox but it says I am using 1.9 GB of space.  I do have some files being shared with me by others but those aren't my files nor did I upload them so they shouldn't be taking up my personal space.

Actually, they do take up your personal space. Any files that are in your account, whether you uploaded or they're part of a shared folder that you've joined, count against your storage quota.

How do i get rid of files shared with me that I don't want taking up space, since anything shared counts against my dropbox storage space?

Can I select the sub-folders inside the main shared folder? I don't have enough storage to accept all the shared contents and some of them are useless to me.
