Funny Dropbox problem

So I got an email from Dropbox saying some of my free storage was expiring. I was losing 48gigs. Problem was Dropbox was saying I was using nearly 28gigs. I knew there was no way I was using that much. I basically just backup epubs, and pictures from my phone. So the search began for the problem.

Not sure how many of you use DB, so a bit of background. If you have it installed on your PC, it will automatically save certain things, like screenshots.


Specifically 35,675 Files. Im assuming my cat decided my laptop was a good spot to nap, and was on my prt sc button. But I have no idea how I ended up with 35,675 screen shots of the same thing. A woot page on Chrome. It was roughly 22gigs of screen shots.
