Hello, I'm having trouble with my storage space.

It says it's full and wont sync any files, but I've been deleting files and nothing appears to be happening.

What I dont understand is why when I see my folders/files in the account it reflects that the usage shoud be less than 500mb and dropbox says I'm using 2,7GB (but it wont display in which files/folders).

 

Thanks!

Hi Mark!!

I think that might be it. How can I deactivate it?

 

Thanks!
