By mistake, many files are being transferred to Dropbox. I did not wish this to happen. I thought I was on selective transfer. Now my box is full and I cannot remove files without them being removed from my computer. How can I reverse this action, please?

Hi @WebSter4, thanks for joining us here on the Community!

It seems like you have enabled the computer backup feature, which backs up your desktop files to Dropbox. 

You can however, disable it and move your files back to their original locations. 

Try and let me know if you have any questions.
