Looking for help with managing the storage space in your Dropbox account? Talk to the Dropbox Community and get advice from members.
My co workers sent me a link to sign up for the company drop box. It was for free 2GB. Upon my initial login, it states that I am out of space.
How can I be out of space when I haven't even started using it?
At a guess they have signed you up and then shared things with you. Shared folders use up the quota of everybody within the Share, so, if you need access to those files you will need to get more space I'm afraid. Either via www.dropbox.com/plans or www.dropbox.com/gs may help

Hi @JulieHL, welcome to our Community!
Can you check your plan page, and let me know what you see there?
Let me know more, and we'll take it from there!
Thanks for the rapid response, @JulieHL!
Do you by any chance see on that page how much space you're using on your account at the moment?
Let us know if you notice any difference!
Hi there, @JulieHL!
Would it be possible to send us a screenshot of the entire page, when you're in your plan tab?
The info about your space should definitely be there, so I want us to check if there's an issue.
