Dropbox files WILL NOT DELETE! Have no option to Delete!

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I have cleared out all data from my DropBox due to failed functions. 

 

There remain TWO FILE backups in Dropbox that have no function option connected to them.  They will not open!  There is no way to delete them.  There are no (...) ellipse menu items to click on.

 

How/Who has the power to delete these files?

 

Thank you,

 

Richard..

Any chance of a screengrab with any personal info blocked out?

I was able to re-establish the uploading of new backups, but the two that should be deleted are still there.

Note from above the APPS folder everything has the (...) menu.  The two below it DO NOT and I have found no way to delete them.
