Dropbox on new hard drive

Dropbox on new hard drive

I recently had a SSHD put in my desktop computer. I had to reinstall Dropbox. Having trouble syncing my iPad with the desktop. Also can’t figure out how to load files from my documents on pc into Dropbox to make them available on iPad. I clicked on backup and got more than I wanted filling Dropbox and not leaving room for anything new - basic install. Should I uninstall and start over? Don’t want photos and ALL files on pc backed up.

Hello @Brent3, let's see what we can do here. 

Could you first let me know if you add a new file through the desktop app the mobile app, which one comes up on the web?

As for the Documents folder being added to your Dropbox folder, it sounds like you've enabled computer backup

Could you check from your Backup tab which folders you have chosen to sync and change them accordingly?

Looking forward to hearing back from you!
