When I click on the dropbox icon from the tray, go to any document there, right click on it and select share. I  get the following screen shots.

The lower screen shot shows options to share the document with DB, DB, B, ML

The first three are fine. I don’t know that ML person at all.

Where did his come from? How do I get rid of it?

Hey @dbushn2, thanks for reaching out to the Dropbox Community.

 

These look like suggestions of people you can share your files with.

 

Perhaps it was an old colleague/client that shared some files with you in the past?

 

If you click on 'clear' next to your manually added contacts on this page, does it help?

 

Keep me posted.

You won't see the names, but if you hit 'clear', do the suggestions get erased?
