    If you have room in Dropbox, just leave it overnight to load. Usually its very quick to put stuff on there so it must be a very big file? I just have a fairly small, free Dropbox account so don't upload massive files. I do put some on the BT Cloud though and that can rumble away for hours. I just leave it to get on with it.

    It has over 9000 people in it Anne, I dont have cloud now, I had such a row with BT, who were charging me 9 per month for it.
    I'm worried I dont have enough room in Dropbox for this, and I have since ,backed it up to my documents, so dont need it in dropbox.

    Have you tried deleting the file from your local copy of Dropbox?

    I have a Dropbox folder on my computer which keeps a synchronized copy of all the online stuff. Deleting a file either local or online deletes the file from both. Possibly, and I can't remember for certain, this happens because I installed Dropbox from my account (click on your picture/icon and choose install).

    thanks for helping David, I found out how to delete stuff, when you say click on your picture Icon and install? what exactly do you mean? where would I find my picture icon?

    The top right corner of your home page on Dropbox online looks something like this.

    The little smiley face is your icon (I haven't upload a photo of me). If you click on that you get a short menu one of the items being Install. Settings is also worth a look.
