How secure are my Dropbox files if my laptop gets hacked?

How secure are my Dropbox files if my laptop gets hacked?

My company had an incident where a laptop was left behind in a rental car. Thankfully, it was recovered. If someone were to hack into this laptop, how secure are my dropbox files? Curently we are individually using the personal plan.

They're as secure as any other file stored on the laptop. Dropbox is just a regular folder like any other. If someone can access your hard drive, they can access the files in the local Dropbox folder on that drive.
