I have uninstalled the desktop app. When I tried to download it again (because it is convenient to have the app vs. going to the online side) it immediately started to "synch" and grab files from my desktop. I don't want to have any files from dropbox on my desktop NOR do I want any of my desktop files to be on dropbox. Is this possible with the app? I just want to be able to navigate dropbox files via the app.... that's all! 🙂
I signed up for dropbox. I must have clicked sync. It tried to sync everything but hit the limit. I do not want to use dropbox for all of my files, just a few I would like to keep separate. please tell me how to get all of my files out of dropbox and back on my pc without deleting them!!
I appreciate your time and help. This is the first chance I've had to take care of this and your reply made the process so much easier. Thank you! May you and yours be prosperous, healthy, and know joy and wellbeing all your life!
I just opened a Dropbox account and it automatically transferred a large amount of my files to dropbox and not on my computer... I did not give permission for this to happen... How do I reverse this backup and restore all files back to the proper spots on my computer?
I've been trying to delete Dropbox from my laptop ever since I realized it has basically hijacked my files! I only installed it to share some files with my accountant. I didn't realize they would take all of the files on my computer and put them under their "safekeeping". Plus, it's continually telling me that I've used all of my free storage and now I need to upgrade! I thought it would just be a way to share files. I didn't want or need another way to store and backup files.
I finally found the way to do it, but under the delete account button, it says files will be gone forever... This is freaking me out a bit. Does anyone know whether I will be able to select the files I want to return back to my pc like they were before I installed Dropbox?? Any information would be greatly appreciated!
Please Help! Somehow i started a sync from Dropbox with my Mac computer. My desktop files and many others are alrerady synced on my dropbox, never wanted that to happened. I paused it indefinitely. If i delete the files already synced on DB, are they going to be delete from my computer?? So scared to even try.
