Why am I getting out of space errors when I have plenty?

What happened to DropBox? Unusable now.

Seems back in the day before Google got its mitts on DB it was relatively easy to use.  Now I can't make heads nor tails of the thing.  And the most frustrating thing is I am relegated to asking a forum to get help.  Sad state of affairs in my opinion.  

OK, rant over.  DB says I am out of storage, yet I've deleted most of my files on the client side.  The cloud side says I don't have those files either.  And yet the 'you're out of storage" notices continue.  What am I missing about how DB functions?  

Thanks in advance.

Google has nothing to do with Dropbox. They are two separate companies.

Are you a member of any shared folders? Do you have any backups saved? These both use space in your account.
