Hi everybody,

 

like mentioned in the subject. My Dropbox says it's full even my Mac says I only have 482 MB used.

The account is only for sharing receipts with my bookkeeping so only small files.

 

There are no shared folders (only the one I use with the bookkeeping).

So I don't know where the 5GBs are from.

 

Any Ideas?

Found the solution by myself. There was a Backup of a device I plugged in once. So maybe I did klick yes on do a backup. Didn't notice it until now.

 

Sorry but maybe this helps someone else. Go check your backup section under the Dropbox Logo if you're stage space is full. 🙂
