Hello,

I was changing my dropbox and in the process I managed to completely set up another account and I didn't realize that it was syncing my documents from my computer to dropbox.  How do I reverse this situation?  Please advise.  Thank you

Help! Some how I managed to sync photos to my dropbox. I have finally unlinked my computer to stop the transfer of any more. How can I remove these pictures from dropbox without losing them on my computer.
Thank you

Hi @ranchhouse1505, thanks for messaging today!

Are the photos currently in your Dropbox folder, or are they only visible online?

This will help me to assist further!
