dropbox says that I'm over my 2gb storage space but I only have 51.52 mb of files on my account. How do I find out what else is there but not showing on my 'all files' section of dropbox.

Any and all help greatly appreciated

Thank you for this, found an external hardrive with back up files. I've stopped auto backup to this drive but dropbox still says I'm over my limit.

Have you removed the backup from Dropbox or just stopped it from running?
