I installed dropbox client on my pc and i didn't notice the sync desktop option. After installation I was no longer able to delete the dropbox folder even after uninstalling the client. In practice, the desktop was always included in the dropbox folder. If you foresee this functionality you should at least have foreseen the possibility of going back.

Re: desktop sync don't do it !!

Hello there @giuseppecristiano123, I'm sorry to hear you had trouble with this!

 

To remove the backup folder or subfolders, you would need to disable the computer backup feature first. 

 

You can check out the steps to do this at the bottom of this article.

 

If you're still having any problems with this, then please don't hesitate to give me a nudge here. I'd be happy to help out.

 

Hope this info helps!
