Cant revert my file location back to default.

New member | Level 2

so I installed dropbox, so I could access my file storage when I'm not online, It added my desktop, documents and download after I told it not to, so now all my applications on my PC are broken because selective sync cant be turned off and it's stuck actively syncing because I don't have enough space, I can't get my files back because some of the path lengths are too long the only way out from what I can see is a system refresh.

Hey @banana_phoenix, thanks for checking in with us. 

 

If our automatic computer backup feature is enabled, it'll add certain key folders on your computer, such as the Desktop, Documents, and Downloads folders, to your Dropbox folder. 

 

In this case, you'll have to first turn it off before moving them out of the Dropbox folder. You can find more info about this, here.  

 

Let me know how it goes, thanks!
