I uninstalled Dropbox but files still show extensions everywhere

I tried to reset the pathways to original however I am getting the following message "can't redirect into reparse point" from windows 10.   Any suggestions?  Since I have deleted dropbox anything i attempt to save to desktop no longer works and as noted I can't seem to restore to original settings.

Hey @Michael P1, welcome to the Dropbox Community!

Did you disable the computer backup feature, before you uninstalled the Dropbox application?

If not, can you please reinstall it, and follow the steps here to disable backup and then try to restore the folders' locations again?

Let me know how it goes.
