I have free Dropbox. I got a full notice and deleted many hours of saved material, many hours of lectures and info deleted days ago. Now I’m trying to download a 7 min. video and am told there is no space and I’m directed to pay for storage. I should still have space

Have you checked www.dropbox.com/backups to make sure you've not activated that?

 

Also, space is a literal thing in terms of size. So deleting 1,000 1mb files is the same as one 1gb file - the volume deleted has no meaning.
