Running out of space

Running out of space

I keep getting emails that I'm running out of space. However, I have very few documents in my Dropbox. However, i do have access to documents from my church's Dropbox account. I feel like their content is being counted toward my account. Am I correct? I just don't understand how I can have a space issue on my own based on my minimal use of Dropbox.

Yes. If you're a member of a shared folder, you have a copy of that folder in your account and it takes up space.
