Storing files on Dropbox is easy, as it is just one click away. It has been one of the best choices for those who needed a bigger memory or cloud storage.
However, you may not notice that you have already saved a thousand files on your Dropbox account – so it is nearly becoming full. Now the time comes when you must go through your files and start deleting whatever is not in need anymore.
Deleting files from Dropbox on your computer may be an easy task but what about users who use the iPhone app? Luckily it’s just as simple if you follow these easy steps.
Removing Dropbox Files on Iphone or Ipad (iOS Devices)
- Unlock your iPhone and launch the Dropbox app.
- Log in to your Dropbox account.
- Browse through your file list and swipe over the file name of the one you wish to delete.
- As you see a set of icons, find the ‘trash can’ and click on it.
- Confirm to delete.
Now the file has been removed to your Dropbox account – it will no longer be shown to your phones and laptops that are synced to your account.
Now you know that removing files from Dropbox is just as easy as adding them. So if you ever need a bigger cloud storage space, then do not hesitate to delete some of your unnecessary files using your iPhone.
However, you cannot undo the deletion process meaning you cannot get back the file you just deleted. It is possible if you have a backup copy of your file on your computer or if you have already downloaded it on your iPhone.
