I no longer need this as they refer to older installations of Windows on older PCs

Hi @ukmikec, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

 

Could you try deleting the computer backups from the Dropbox site directly?

 

Keep me updated with any progress!

I was finally able to do it after many months. I hit the "new location" link next to the folder name. it brought me to the new backup module, where it then directed me to unlink the computer I no longer had. once that was done, the icon on the backup folder changed back to normal and I was able to delete it.

Who's talking
