My wife logged into my  dropbox on her computer and it uploaded files from her computer and its taking up my dropbox space. How do I remove the files from my dropbox without deleting them from her computer?

Re: Remove files

Hi @NT3, thanks for joining the Community!

 

Are you referring to disabling the computer backup feature on that machine, or to to remove files that were synced when connecting the Dropbox account to her machine?

 

This will help me assist further!
