Can't delete a file called vault.dbx-vault

This just appeared for no reason, and I cannot delete it. This is under the root folder.

That file is required by the Dropbox Vault feature and it cannot be deleted.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I understand it's a feature. However, there are two vault files on my list. I want to delete one of them. The one that has the file name "vault.dbx-vault" cannot be opened or deleted.

You can't delete it. The file is required by Dropbox. Just ignore it.
