My desktop path is in the dropbox folder i the users directory

for example ,

i have a desktop folder on my computer C:/Users/Dell/Desktop

i also have one in the desktop C:/Users/Dell/Desktop/MyPC(Dell-PC)/Desktop

the problem is that the screen of my laptop shows the desktop folder in the dropbox (2nd path)

how can i change it to show the first desktop folder?

Hello @samirkumar, I'd be happy to help. 

 

It sounds like you have computer backup enabled, which backs up computer folders, like Documents, Desktop, and Downloads, to your Dropbox folder. 

 

For this reason, you'll have to turn it off first before moving the files back to their original locations. 

 

You can find more information about this, here

 

Let me know if you have any other questions, thanks!
