I deleted the Dropbox app and such from my computer and then emptied the trash.... Now I my desktop, downloads and folders are missing from my Mac. I cannot access them, create folders on my desktop or download files.

Hey @Keniel O, welcome to our Community! 
 
It sounds like you’re referring to the Computer Backup feature. 
 
Since you emptied your computer’s Trash, that must have deleted the files as well. 

Can you open the Finder and search for any example file names you are missing or for “My Mac”?
 
Let me know the results once you do!
