I have been using the free version of Dropbox which is now full (2gb) on a limited basis and with little expertise in its use but having rationalised all of the various backup options I have installed, have decided to cease using it. I am concerned about losing any files in the quitting process. Does deleting the App and closing my account delete any of the original files that are in Dropbox from my computer. I am concerned that I accidentally dropped my Home Directory into Dropbox and that is what has filled it. Thanks for advice on this.
Thanks Jay, The computer backup function was not on. I must have done it manually as well as moving the Application folder to backup. It is the My Mac folder that I am most concerned about. How specifically, do I move the files in Dropbox back to the original position. Is it drag and drop or must I download first or is there an easier way, like reverse backup or the like? Cheers, Leigh
Hi Jay, I am away from my security cameras and will need to check tomorrow but i think that is what it may be. I seem to recall that the Swann Security system installed was supposed to deliver photos to Dropbox. It looks like every file that is there could be generated by the cameras when triggered - mostly false alarms. Not that i ca n see any but something is consuming the best part of 2gb. If it is this, can they all be deleted? I will check it tomorrow. Thanks for the great help.
