Re: How do I delete or remove Vault?

New member | Level 2

there has to be a way to get my files out of the "vault"? I am trying to copy it to my desktop but it wont let me; i also tried to remove the file, but it wont let me. It is useless because I need the files to continue working on those files!

Hi @jjjjjmnmn, could you try moving the files out of the Vault via the Dropbox site to another location on your Dropbox account? When it syncs on your machine, try moving it to the location you wanted to move it to.

 

Let me know how it goes!

I agree.  Had no idea could not get back out of Vault.  Any information that anyone comes up with to save these files would be appreciated.  Thank you.

Please let us remove the Vault. It's adding to my already cluttered sidebar in Windows 10. 

 

Get with it Dropbox!

How this is still a thing is beyond my comprehension. I don't want to see the vault, why in the world should that be undeleteable!

Can we make sure this isn’t marked as accepted until there’s a resolution?

Hey everyone, we don't have any update on this just yet, but we will let you know as soon as we do. 

 

In the meantime, I've removed the post that was marked as a solution and leave this thread open. 

 

If you have any other questions, just give us another nudge. 

 

Thanks!

I see that this thread has been opened since July 2020 and there is still no solution (November 2020). 

 

I am a long time Dropbox paid user and do not want to see the Valut in my file folder structure, either. 

 

I am not sure where it came from but has now synced on all my devices and shows up in my file list. 

 

Very frusturating and am eager to learn how to remove it from my file list.
