How do I desync my PC on my dropbox ?

How do I desync my PC on my dropbox ?

Explorer | Level 3

Hello,

Since I re-installed dropbox in my computer,

my 'documents' folder on my PC is synced to my dropbox.

As it is very big, my dropbox is now full and I have constant notifications to upgrade my dropbox account.

 

I haven't found a way to desync my documents folder.

 

Can you help me ?

 

Thank you !

I have the same problem and I'm getting really desperate about it since it's blocking me from doing work for school. I hope someone can help us out here

Hey @moirouf0 and @Bramdc, I'd be happy to help!

 

When you follow the steps to turn computer backup off, you'll get the option to return the folders to their original location. 

 

You can find more information about it, here

 

Give that a try and let me know how it goes. Thanks!
