help  I told dropbox to sync my desktop by mistake now I  don't know how to stop it.  Since adding dropbox to my pc it is taking ages to print anything at all and when I download anything it states dropbox in front of the locations is this right

Hey @Kerig, thanks for checking in with us. 

 

At first, I wanted to mention that if you don't want to have our computer backup feature enabled, you can turn it off by following these steps and move the files to their original locations. 

 

As for the printing, out of curiosity, do you experience a general slow-down while the desktop app isn't running?

 

Let me know what you find, cheers!
