How can I stop my computer files form syncing to Dropbox?

New member | Level 2

Hello.

 

I am new to dropbox.  I am trying to take all my files and folders from my dropbox, back to my macbook desktop.  Does anyone know how to do this?  I don't know what to do and I don't want to delete anything on accident.

 

Thank you.

Hi @AshleyK93, thanks for messaging today!

 

It sounds like you might have enabled the automatic computer backup feature in the Dropbox desktop application.

 

Could you first try disabling the computer backup from Dropbox using the steps in the above article to see if this helps?

 

Afterwards, you can follow the steps in the article to move your files back to their old location.

 

Hope this helps!
