I loaded a bunch of stuff off my current PC over to drop box. Now I find if I go to access it on this computer sometimes it won't load or says that it can't open the file. I was using spreadsheets now it has them as .xlr files. Some stuff will load others it says it can't access it and loads up a blank spreadsheet. What is going on here?
It appears that it might be because I was trying to access the file from the original location on the computer which was a file called "documents" Now it is in the dropbox folder of computer. Just messed with it a little and that might be my issue.
Not sure how I'd disable the feature? Right now it appears it has duplicate files I guess you could say. Original files in original folders then fact that it is backed up there is a drop box folder on my computer. Just as long as once I move things to a new computer I can access them then I'll be happy. I haven't set up the new computer yet. But I won't be getting rid of old one til I know everything is safe.

Probably not. The computer backup feature doesn't create a second copy of the folders in Dropbox. It MOVES the Desktop, Documents and Downloads folders into your Dropbox folder. There's still only one copy. Delete a file in Dropbox and it's deleted from your computer.
