Dropbox folder is taking up space on your Mac. Use Disk Space Analyzer to scan your Dropbox folder, when it is filling up your hard drive. Disk Space Analyzer allows you to scan the folder, analyze its disk usage and find the bulkiest content in it.

  1. Run Disk Space Analyzer
  2. Choose the Dropbox folder.
  3. Click the Play icon to start scanning.
  4. View Dropbox folder space usage.

Disk Space Analyzer quickly finds the largest content (files and folders that take up the most space) as well as old files, that have not been accessed for the long term. These files may no longer be needed, so it’s logical to delete or move them to another location.
