Hello, recently I have been receiving warnings that say "Remove X from your Dropbox account and all devices?
If you move this folder to X it won’t be available in Dropbox or on any devices."
X are names of folder I’m simply moving in my computer, but not deleting in anyway, nor from Dropbox nor from my computer.
At the bottom of the message, it says "cancel" or "move out of dropbox".
What is all that and why it started appearing to me?
I don’t think I get it. I have always moved files from folders to folder and never had this warning. Even now, I move many files at once, and the message only appears for two or three files.
If I am moving a file, I understand it can be seen as a deletion, but the error message is misleading, then. It seems that I am deleting the file at all and will never have access to it.
And, finally, I’m not moving outside of dropbox at all, I’m just chaning folders, and both are inside Dropbox. So having to click "move out of dropbox" is, again, very misleading - because this isn’t what is happening.
Well, if I click "don’t ask me this again" am I safe that I won’t lose any files when I move them as I always did?
I too am getting the same message, however when I select Dont ask me again it has not worked. I consistently and radomly receive the message in all three of my company files.
It is very frustrating as I fear I may hit the wrong button and lose data.
... I consistently and radomly receive the message in all three of my company files....
What you mean "all three of my company files"? Does it happen only on particular file types and/or such managed with same/similar applications, but not on other file types/applications? Is it happening only during particular activity while you are working with your files (at save moment of changes, for example)?
Hope your clarifications can give better context.
