Log in your Dropbox account at dropbox.com/home, then select the Delete option. The Delete option  is here (If your network is unstable, the all the options including Delete option will be gone):

As for copy folders to the computer, just go to Dropbox folder in your computer, and then copy it outside of Dropbox Folder, and delete these folders in Dropbox folder. That's all.
