Unlink shared folder from dropbox

Unlink shared folder from dropbox

New member | Level 2



How do I unlink a "shared pc folder" from our dropbox account? I am unable to upload anything to our account because the "PC" that's on our dropbox is taking up too much space. Please help.


Thank you!

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


It sounds like you enabled the automatic computer backup feature in the Dropbox desktop application. Could you first try disabling the computer backup from Dropbox using the steps in the above article to see if this helps?


Afterwards, you'll get the option to move the folders and files back to their previous locations, which will also delete them from the Dropbox account online.


Keep me updated with any progress!
