You activated the backup feature, which MOVES your key folders (Desktop, Documents, Downloads, etc.) into your Dropbox folder. They're still on your computer, just moved into the Dropbox folder so Dropbox can sync them to your account.

You need to turn BackUp off first (see @Rich's link) and then uninstall.
