Hey @CHEED, thanks for reaching out to us on the Dropbox Community. 

 

It sounds like you're trying to delete the Dropbox folder while it's still connected to your account. 

 

For this reason, you'll have to first unlink your computer from your account. 

 

Once you do that, the Dropbox folder will be just like any other folder on your hard drive that doesn't sync online, and you can move or delete the files without affecting the ones on the website. 

 

Let me know if this helps or if you have any other questions. Cheers!
