2 of my tracks have been removed for copyright reasons and yet they still appear to be occupying my quota, how can I permanently delete these tracks?

Hi Timur,

Thanks for getting in touch about this. Once a track has been blocked for copyright infringement it isn't possible to delete them from your account and they will remain on your track manager page. These tracks will not count towards your account quota.

They won't be playable or publicly available on your profile, and you'll only be able to see them if you're logged into your account. The tracks will be listed on your track manager page to let you know the status of the tracks on your account and to alert you to any tracks that might need attention in case you would like to dispute the takedowns.

If you would like to file a dispute, you can do so here: http://copyright.soundcloud.com

It looks like your track "Gotye - Somebody I Used To Know (badmonkey bootleg remix) - 7A - 128" is currently hidden.

You can check out what tracks are hidden on your account here: https://soundcloud.com/you/tracks. To delete click to 'view hidden tracks' and hover your mouse over the track for the 'trash' icon to appear.

I hope this helps, please let us know if there's anything else we can help you with.

Best,
Mathis
Hi! I'm having the same trouble. It says "You’re over your free 3-hour limit by 96 minutes".
But I only have one track (4mins) available, the rest are disabled
