...or maybe I am not understanding Dropbox and to copy something to Dropbox there has to be room on my hard drive to make another copy of what I'm uploading??
Exactly! Dropbox is not a cloud-based folder that exists only on the Dropbox servers. It's a folder like any other on your computer. Anything you place in it exists on your local drive. Remember, Dropbox is a file synchronization service. It's meant to keep the files on your computer in-sync with other devices linked to your account.
