Hey @816designer, thanks for joining our Community!

What you'll need to do is disable the computer backup feature on your Dropbox application.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Hi @816designer, have you checked the preferences in the Dropbox desktop application?

Are you able to see the option to disable the computer backup feature from there?
