How to delete folder named "PC"

How to delete folder named "PC"

yyang5823

I installed dropbox app on my PC and configured it with sync files with dropbox.  It created the folder named "PC" in my dropbox account.  This folder contains subfolders: desktop, documents & download.  Now, I have removed dropbox app from my PC, and made sure PC is not longer connected to dropbox.

 

I want to delete the "PC" folder from dropbox.com.  I could not find a way of doing it.  When I clicked "....", there is no "delete" option available.  The "PC" folder takes all space in my account.  How do I delete this folder?  Please help.

Hi @yyang5823, thanks for posting on the Community!

It sounds like you enabled the automatic computer backup feature in the Dropbox desktop application. Could you first try disabling the computer backup from Dropbox by deleting the device from this page?

Afterwards, try the steps in this article to move the files back into the default folders.

Keep me updated with any progress!

I have unlinked my PC from dropbox at page you provided.  But I still don't see  delete delete option when clicking the "...."  next to the "PC" folder.  What should I do now?
