Hello:

 

I would like to clear my sync history (some of the file names are confidential).  Is there a way to do this?

Hey @beardedone, thanks for posting on our Community and happy Friday!

Are you referring to the history on your notification window, when you click on the Dropbox icon in your system tray/menu bar?

If so, I'm afraid that there's no way to clear it at the moment.

You're welcome to post an idea about this on our idea board, though.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I think there should be option like that. The files which appear there are super old and I removed them accidentally before so now seeing that reminds me of what I lost. I think I am going to remove this app again because it just messes up my computer and is not practical

On the web, I was able to permanently delete the files, but that didn't fix the app.

On a Mac, I logged out of the app by going to the icon with your initials / Preferences / Account / Sign out. It closes down completely, but doesn't delete the app. Go to Applications and open the app again. Log in and push through the start up questions. Once done, my files were still there (Activity), but the "Sync History" was cleared.
