Can I delete a folder from an old desynchronized device?

Can I delete a folder from an old desynchronized device?

New member | Level 2

Ok, so here it goes:

I used to share a few files with my ex on her PC back when we were together. When we broke up, I stopped syncing my folders BUT my super power of screwing everything made me select the wrong choice and I didn't delete the files from her PC. Is there any way of deleting those files after I desynchronized her pc?

 

I probably already know the answer, buuuut it doesn't hurt to ask.

 

Thank you in advance people

No, that's not possible. If you removed her from the share but left the option to let her keep a copy of the files enabled, then there's no way to delete them now.
