Its doing this because that is what Dropbox is designed, intended and supposed to do. Dropbox is a syncing tool, so, whatever you do inside of the Dropbox folder replicates online and to all connected devices. So, if you delete something at Dropbox online it deletes also on the computer. However, it will ONLY delete in the Dropbox folder on your computer - nowhere else.
So, a work around to this is simply move it out of the Dropbox folder on your computer to another place. That will delete from Dropbox but leave it on your computer 🙂
