View Full Version : How do I delete Dropbox files?

02-07-2018, 12:02 PM
I have received a notice saying that my Dropbox is almost full. I will need to upload some files shortly and so I will need to delete some files. But how do I do so? When I try to delete some files I receive a note that says "You need permission to perform this action." "You need permission from (our names) to make changes to this folder."

Where do I get permission from? I have no idea.

You help is appreciated.

You can login via a browser and manage your files and account from there https://www.dropbox.com/home I just deleted a test file and it worked ok for me.

It should also work on your local machine but I don't have drop box installed here to try it, sounds like you are not logged in properly and only have read access.

Thank you Dugimodo. I used the site you supplied and received a different looking window than before and were able to delete the folders I wished to.

Thanks for you help. Much appreciated. I had some fairly large files that I needed to upload for someone else to download and it worked a treat. Thanks for that.
