Desktop moved to dropbox in error - won't let me remove it

Desktop moved to dropbox in error - won't let me remove it

Somehow my desktop has moved into my dropbox folder. Whe I try to move it, it says This is a Dropbox feature, so you can't move it.

 

The Desktop filepath is C:\Users\Windows\Dropbox

 

How do I restore it?

 

😕

Hey @mickseym, thanks for posting today! 

It seems you're referring to our Computer Backup feature. 

Here are the steps on how you can disable it, and move the content back to their original paths. 

Cheers.
