How to return back the right paths after removing the Dropbox application?

How to return back the right paths after removing the Dropbox application?

New member | Level 2

Hello my friends! 

Can anyone help me how can I return back the previous User's folder paths after removing the Dropbox? After removing it still stayed like: "c:\Users\Konstantin\Dropbox\Мой ПК (Desktop-0\Documents\" 

BUT I need to make it like it was before:

"c:\Users\Konstantin\Documents\" 

How can I do it without any file replacement? 

    Sincerely yours, Konstantin.Dropbox1 (1).jpg

Hi @KonstantinOsipov, thanks for posting today!

 

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 using the steps in the above article to see if this helps?

 

Afterwards, you can move the folders and files back to their previous locations, which will also delete them from the Dropbox account online.

 

 

Let me know how it goes!

Thank you, Jay! The problem is that I already uninstalled Dropbox. But now I will try to install it again, and I will disable this feature. I will let you now how it goes. Sorry for long delay. Try to do it faster.
