Beta nightmare!

Explorer | Level 3

I have download the new Dropbox version, a beta one.

This version synchronise folders that you DO NOT WANT in your dropbox in a folder named "my PC", as desk, your documents or download and if you try to deconnect them, you can not go on! IT IS A DATA BREACH!

Hi @Afsud, thanks for reaching out to us and for sharing your feedback!

 

It sounds like you're referring to our computer backup feature, which allows you to back up certain folders, such as Desktop, Documents, and Downloads, to your Dropbox folder. 

 

You can find more info about it and how to turn it off in this article

 

If you have any trouble along the way, don't hesitate to get back to us. Cheers!

Dear Lusil,

Thank you for your quick answer but there is a failure in this beta version.

When you follow the process:

Pour configurer la sauvegarde sur ordinateur :

  1. Cliquez sur l'icône Dropbox dans la zone de notification (Windows) ou la barre des menus (Mac).
  2. Cliquez sur votre image de profil ou sur vos initiales.
  3. Cliquez sur Préférences.
  4. Cliquez sur l'onglet Sauvegardes.
  5. Cliquez sur Gérer la sauvegarde
  6. Cochez les dossiers à sauvegarder.
  7. Cliquez sur Suivant ou sur Synchroniser avec Dropbox (selon votre compte), puis suivez les étapes indiquées. 

If you untick all the folders (step 6), you can not proceed to the next step.

Thanks for getting back to me, @Afsud

 

Could you send me a screenshot of what you do see when you untick the folders that come up under the backup option?

 

If you have any trouble attaching an image, you can send it to me as a shared link

 

Looking forward to hearing back from you!
