Free up disk space from Dropbox sync

Ran out of disk space on my puny Macbook Air SSD. After tuning down using "Selective Sync", OSX disk utility still reports 7.9GB of space used by ~/Dropbox folder.

rm -rf ~/Dropbox/.dropbox.cache/*

That solved it. Apparently that hidden folder caches files for easy undelete within 3 days.
