Stored files less than Basic Plan and Dropbox screams for more space

My Dropbox is a basic plan with 2 GB of space. I currently have only 206 MB of files stored. I have checked by enlarging to 3 TB and I see no more files in my Dropbox. How come the system says I have used 8.5 GB of space when that is not the case?

Check your Backups page. You likely have the backup feature enabled.
