Complete beginner. Don't understand how it works

Complete beginner. Don't understand how it works

Demo2
New member | Level 2

I've just started using drop box and have got in a bit of a muddle as I dont know what I'm doing! My sons guitar teacher has been sending lesson videos using drop box. I just want to put the video file on my desktop and send it to a tablet using drop box. I dont want to use dropbox for any other files as its just confusing me. I've managed to set things up so that all sorts of files are being stored on dropbox (if that's the right term) and it rapidly uses up my free storage allocation. I thinking I need to change the settings so that drop box only deals with files on my desktop or a specific file I specify.

Can any one out there help me with some idiot proof instructions?

Hey
I also had problems at the beginning but there are great explanatory videos on YouTube.

Hi @Demo2; thanks for joining our Community!

If you're referring to the computer backup feature, you can find out how to disable it here.

Let me know if that's not the case!
