Deleting my account as Dropbox started syncing my computer files

Deleting my account as Dropbox started syncing my computer files

I was starting to delete my account, but I got the message that maybe Dropbox could help.  The bot was useless but it also said I could ask the Dropbox community.  This is what I wrote as to why I want to delete the account:

 

I made the mistake of trying to sync everything, and synced things I didn't want to be out there. I found that I can't delete from dropbox without also deleting on my computer, and also I used up the basic amount of space very soon, and I don't want to pay for the other versions. So, I'm going to delete my account for now, and then later, once all my files are deleted from Dropbox, rejoin again so I can put on dropbox and sync only the files I want to, and leave the rest just on my computer.
