Clear your Dropbox cache to free up space on your Android device

Clear your Dropbox cache to free up space on your Android device

While listening to music on my Galaxy Note 2 I received a very weird error message – my device was almost out of space. I thought this odd since I have the 16GB version and a 64GB card as well.

So, I launched the Application Manager and saw that Dropbox was taking up almost 1GB by itself. This was even more confusing since I don’t have any files marked as favourites on my Android, so technnically Dropbox shouldn’t be taking up much space.

It turns out Dropbox creates a local cache of files that you open. My cache was almost a gig, but once I cleared it out, it was back down to 0.

Here’s How Clear Your Dropbox cache and free up space on your Android device.

1. Open Dropbox App
2. Click ‘Settings’
3. Scroll down to the bottom of the menu and select “Clear Cache”

That’s all there is to it. Now you should have a bunch of free space available again.
