I was sent a file in dropbox, but somehow everything in my harddrive is now in dropbox and I think can be seen by the person that sent it.  How do I delete all that stuff that is personal from that file and start over.  Also it says I can't see msg. files.  Please help

Hi @marybeth,

As seems you have turn on Dropbox Computer Backup. Most probably, unintentionally you turned it on by clicking Yes on some question without payed attention what actually it means. Be more careful in  future! Just turn this feature off (take a look on referred help topic) and your issue will gone. 😉

Hope this helps.

 

Add: Make sure you haven't left your files/folders within Dropbox, but restore them to the original places - chose the proper options.
