About a month ago I uninstalled dropbox. Today I tried to install it again, however dropbox keeps on reminding me about the folder from the previous installation and asking me to delete it and rename it or remove it. I try to rename it, it crashes. I try to delete it, it pops up with the message , "you can't delete the folder because it's open in another program. I did not know it was open somewhere else so I threw the folder into the shredder from mcaffe. It deleted about half of it. Then again, it deleted so much that the folder showed up as empty. And I have 2 problems with this
1) I still cannot delete the folder because I keep getting a message that it is open in another program
2. i didn't notice it before but dropbox is connected to my downloaded folder (in the sense before /downloaded was /Dropbox) so after clearing the folder the whole folder became inaccessible and i got a message about no location and only after restoring the default location i regained access but the profile was empty. The files are not saved on my dropbox account so I don't see them in my history or deleted files tab. Is there any way I can recover them?
