Hi, I am trying to follow the instructions below, but when I go into Preferences and the Backup tab I don't see any of the folders at all so I can't uncheck them. Likewise for uncheck My Mac/My PC.
Turn off computer backup

Hi Walter and thank you for responding to my message. Please see below the screen dump as requested (for some reason it wouldn't let me copy and paste into this post so I had to save it as a .JPEG file first and upload it). Regards, Kevin.
Thanks for your reply. Yes I did follow the steps to disable the feature on the same device I enabled it on. However that did not stop it from continuing to "backup" (or more correctly move files from) my laptop c: drive to the cloud. How do I stop it doing that and let me move my folders / files permanently back to the C: drive, please?
Thanks and regards, Kevin.
Hi Lori, Yes I have now done that and it does seem to have worked - strange though because that is what I thought I had done previously and it then put all the files back again to Dropbox. Is it safe for me to also delete the empty folders in Dropbox that had the files in before I moved them back to the C: drive? I ask because there is a message that says it's going to delete them "everywhere" and obviously I don't want them deleted from the C: now that I've got that sorted. Thanks, Kevin.
