How can I share my backup folders?

How can I share my backup folders?

Hello,

 

I'm a new user and need to get some help with file sharing. When I see Dropbox on the left hand side and the folders are selected I can see the share button on the right - nice and easy. However, when I see dropbox backup on the left corner and blue folders below and I tick the select box - I cannot see the share button on the right. How can I move these to the main dropbox so I can share? And what's the best way to sync so that this issue is resolved permanently?

Those are folders that are saved to Dropbox as part of the computer backup feature. They cannot be shared or moved or it would break your backup. You would need to make a separate copy of the folder in your Dropbox, and then you should be able to share it.
