Hello, I have a dropbox account through my job, with my work email. I installed dropbox on my computer at home so i can work from home when I'm not at the office. dropbox created a folder backing up my hard drive, and when i went to the office today the backup showed on my work computer. Obviously i don't want that there so i want to know how do i remove it from my dropbox. I followed the instructions in the help support center but there is no delete option i can see when i go to "All Files". Please help.
Hello. I have a new client that let me know they use DB for file sharing.
In preparing to use DropBox, I mistakenly had all of my iMac files uploaded to DP, and now I want to delete them from the cloud. If I do that through dropbox.com, will the files in USER/DOCUMENTS/MY FILES IN DROPBOX on my iMac be intact?

Sounds like you enabled the computer backup feature.
I am on Basic plan because my primary reason for using Dropbox is to sync Moneydance to my iPhone and store 10-15 annual training files. This morning, I clicked on a "Learn More" button re auto syncing and I almost immediately received notification that I was out of space and needed to upgrade. I don't want to upgrade--totally satisfied with Basic plan--and want to get back to what I had stored as of the end of the day on 4/5/2021. I have paused syncing indefinitely pending further advice from Dropbox. I'm reading if you delete a file from Dropbox, it also will be deleted from my Mac which has me shaking in my shoes. How do I "unwind" what syncing was started at 7:12am today, ensure that those synced files are, in fact, still on my hard drive and get my space to the <2 GB size? Emma, a chat rep, started to provide me with "step-by-step instructions" earlier today, but when I clicked on Keep files(?)..., a new dialog box opened--shaded grey--and Emma suggested that I go to Support for technical assistance. Please help!!!

I deleted Dropbox App and my account data, but it is still syncing and I was curious to see what would happened if I deleted C: >users> USER> Dropbox> My PC> Desktop/documents/downloads/, and it deleted my C: drive but luckily I stopped it 25% before it deleted 50%. But even more luckily I had a restore point which dated when I installed Dropbox but when I went back to the restore Point it still had Drop box Desktop/documents/downloads, and still syncing. Please help me fix it to stop syncing and to go back to C:\Users\USER\Desktop\documents\downloads.
