My Dropbox folder on my MBP claims to have more in it than it does

    Dropbox told me I was using up too much space. I checked my Dropbox folder on my Mac, the folder that syncs with the program, and Finder tells me that folder has 8.79 GB's in it. But when I open each file and folder, it doesn't come anywhere close to that. I'm trying to figure out why it might be telling me there is more in there than there actually is. Thoughts? When I look at Dropbox online, it has the same files and the same size...although, again, the sum of the visible files and folders is not even 5 GB.

    Are you selectively syncing certain folders back to your computer?

    I have all of the folders checked so I'm still syncing everything
