Backup

Explorer | Level 3

Hello,

By mistake I activated the backup of my pc on Dropbox. Now the Dropbox space is not enough and I don't want to upgrade, how can I proceed?
Can I disconnect the backup someway or do I risk to loose data from the PC too?

Thank you

Hi Walter,

 

I have the same problem with backup, but help center its not usefull, because i can not find "preferences" anywhere. I ve tried a lot, why i can not see "preferences"?

Sorry to hear you're having issues with this @Marco29.

 

The app's preferences should be accessible through the app's icon in your system tray/menu bar.

 

Can you take a look and let me know if this helped?
