Hey @Pablomvindas21, I'm sorry to hear about your trouble with this!
When the app was installed previously, did you backup your Desktop folder with the computer backup options?
If you're not sure, please check if there is a "My PC/Mac" folder within your Dropbox folder.
The folder may be hidden, so please make sure that the option to "show hidden files" is enabled on your computer, or just check for the folder mentioned above in your account online.
Let me know and we can go from there!
Same thing happened to me, dropbox took all of my files off of my computer and when I deleted drop box all of my files were gone. I went to the drop box website to see if they were backed up, all there is there is empty folders. Drop box has to be the worst program all of time. I will definitely tell everyone I can not to use them and I will never use them again.
