I have a half a terabyte hard drive and 1 Terabyte on dropbox that I recently reorganized. In a follow up sync (which btw is estimated as 'days'), Dropbox needs SO much space that it forced me to remove EVERYTHING from my hard disk including all files and most applications that I had to delete, and it STILL is OUT OF SPACE and will not finish syncing!!!!! I'm at a state where I want to take all my files and never, ever, EVER use this crappy application again, BUT.. Dropbox is now holding my files hostage because I cannot download them as they are out of sync. This IS a bug. I have a list of software I have to reinstall if and when this DROPBOX NIGHTMARE will end, and an external hard drive with ALL what used to be on my internal hard drive to put back on my computer. Dropbox is worse than Ransomware. At least Ransomware was doing things by design, dropbox is just clueless which worries me MORE. I'm at a point where I can only uninstall my OS (win 8.1) to make more space, but WAIT, that's impossible! And even if it was I'm sure that 5 minutes after I deinstalled the OS, dropbox would again pop up with a little error that syncing cannot continue as more space is needed to sync. Junk, junk, junk. Never again. Better business bureau if this is not resolved. So far no answer from support.
