Why is Dropbox syncing my personal files and folders now, not just my pics ?

Why is Dropbox syncing my personal files and folders now, not just my pics ?

I'm annoyed this happened with an upgrade of my computer

Dropbox has synced all of my personal files and folders without my consent and now telling me to upgrade or I will lose all of my files.... HOW FRIGGEN CHEEKY !!!

How do I fix this and stop it syncing everything on my laptop ?

I'm going to report Dropbox soon for doing this without my permission

Hey @Walter, I just checked my Dropbox files on my PC and the PC folder is still there and now showing 6GB in that folder but no longer showing on my Dropbox homepage... I thought this would have been deleted ???

Is the app still syncing those changes in your system tray perhaps @Saffyron
