Hi, I have a problem. I accidentally linked my local folders to Dropbox (on Mac) and now I want to delete them from my storage, but there is no deletion option.

You likely have the computer backup feature enabled.

Deleting the dropbox doesn't help, I spent a lot of time on it, I want to get my system folders back and delete this program.
