My Dropbox folder took my files

My Dropbox folder took my files

Explorer | Level 3

When signing up for Dropbox, Somehow all my files were transfers into Lockbox. Now my Lockbox is always saying it is full. How do I get all the stuff back out of Lockbox and onto my original place on my computer?

Hello @sharki81, I'd be more than happy to help!

 

It sounds like you had computer backup turned on during the Dropbox desktop app's installation. 

 

Could you follow these steps to disable it and move the files back to their original locations? 

 

Give that a try and let me know how it goes, thanks!
