Hello, I have already tried deleting files, permanently deleting it, but nothing's changing on my account. 

Upon checking all the space I have consumed, I'm only consuming less than 1mb through the desktop app (properties). But Dropbox says I have consumed 3.53gb out of 2gb. My "regular files" consumes 3.5gb, but I don't know what those files are. I have already unlinked all my other devices. 

I already checked the Backup settings. The first time I checked it, it has a backup that consumes 3gb so I deleted it. I thought it's already okay. But Dropbox is still saying it's full. The 3gb backup is no longer there tho. 

I'm using a dropbox with a team, but I am the only one who experiences this.
