The Desktop items on my computer's home screen have mostly disappeared, after a brief smart synching error from dropbox. This has never occured before with smart synch, other than when i activated the feature for the fist time on my computer, and everything on the home screen was immediately restored after the conversion process was finished.
From what it looks like, all of the files are still on my computer as local files, and the smart synch seems to be in working order again, but because of the lapse in function from the synch, the home screen icons for the files, applications, and photos are all missing from their original locations.
When I went to the folder containing all the files saved by dropbox, and tried to begin moving them back to their places on my home screen, I was given a "Remove ((file)) from your dropbox account and all devices?" warning, which, of course, isn't a risk I'm willing to take because of how vague it sounds. I'm just stumped right now, and would like for everything to be returned to their proper locations on my screen, gets confusing to navigate without it.
