Dropbox keeps saying it is full but when I go into it, there are barely any files (taking up very small space) and no shared files. There does not seem to be a way to see what individual files are taking up all the space so unsure how to proceed. Where did all the space go?

After struggling all afternoon I found thanks to your advice that it had backed up an ssd of files which I didn't want copied. The link you gave me took me to the page I needed to delete it and now everything is great again. Thank you.
