How to use Dropbox logs?
We know how important it is for you to keep track of your data usage, especially if you have a limited data plan. To help you stay on top of your account, we’ve created a tool that allows you to view your Dropbox logs.
Here’s how to use it:
1. Sign in to dropbox.com.
2. Click your avatar (profile picture or initials) in the top right corner of the screen, then click Settings.
3. In the left sidebar, click Data usage.
4. To view your Dropbox logs, select an account and date range from the drop-down menus at the top of the page, then click View logs.
