I allowed all my computer files to be backed up to dropbox. How can I remove these essential files from dropbox without removing them from my computer? I did stop the backup, but not before the program and set up files were backed up.
I am not certain the computer backup feature has been disabled from the desktop preferences.
I opened file explorer, went to the dropbox section and dragged the file folders to my desktop. A dialogue box asked if I wanted to delete them from dropbox and I said yes. I can't tell if they have been removed from my dropbox account.
Are you able to move files out of the Dropbox folder to other locations on your computer? I moved them from the desktop to the places I thought they belonged; that is I moved "Program Files" to the Program files folder, etc.
It looks like the files I dragged to the desktop have been removed from my dropbox account. There is still my Documents file folder on dropbox. I'd like to remove it also and disable the backup option to dropbox.
I'd appreciate any advice you can give me to help solve this problem.
