Dropbox removes all my files from the Desktop folder, is that normal?

Dropbox removes all my files from the Desktop folder, is that normal?

New member | Level 2

Hey,
Dropbox is removing all my data from my desktop folder over and over again. I reinstalled the app several times, but the situation remains the same. If I open Dropbox in my browser, all the data is still there. 
Is this a common problem? 

I used Dropbox for over 8 years and never experienced a similar malfunction.

If anyone have an idea what the probelm could be, I would be verry thankful for some helpful tipps,

Jonas

Hi there @jonasWald; thanks for joining our Community and happy Friday!

 

I'm not sure if this is the case, but did you enable the computer backup feature at some point?

 

Any additional information is more than welcome, Jonas.
