Clear dropbox cache

So with work we tend to use dropbox for some rather large files. And on most of my computers I don’t have an issue with how dropbox functions. However I occasionally have issues where these large files remain on the system in a hidden file, and I will have to go in and clean out these old files.

Like today I had to go and remove about 200 gigs of old files. Now from what I’ve read dropbox is supposed to take care of this itself, but clearly it doesn’t happen all the time.

So here’s how you clean this out.

Hit the start button and type:

%HOMEPATH%\Dropbox\.dropbox.cache

This will bring you to the dropbox cache where you can delete files that you have deleted from dropbox, but still remain on your system.
