Hi @Ritab5737, I'd be happy to help! 

 

You mentioned that you moved files from your Dropbox folder, to a folder inside your computer. Do you notice this behavior on these files too? 

 

Since your Dropbox folder syncs the changes to your account online, that means that all the changes you make, will get reflected on your other devices too. 

 

Therefore if you delete a file off of your Dropbox folder, that message is expected when it comes down to your Dropbox folder.

 

Let me know more!
