If a laptop is wiped remotely will it remove my dropbox files else where

Hi all

I Have Dropbox installed over x3 devices (with different 'relevent' folders on differnt devices)

Ive recently had my work laptop stollen. I have a feeling my place of work will try to wipe the laptop remotely (not sure if this is possible?)

From memory there's only x1 folder in dropbox on this device. 

Q: if they do remotely wipe laptop will that intern also remove the folder from the cloud and then again intern remove from my other devices? Not sure if i should make a copy of folder with a different name / or not needed??

thanks in advance

Jon

Wiping a device will only wipe the files located on that device. It will have no affect on other devices or the files in the cloud.
