Unable to delete a folder that has a windows (4 Square) symbol rather than folder symbol.

Hi - the problem started when I had to replace by computer and transferred all the folders and files over to the new one.

When I set up dropbox to work from this computer it somehow added to what it backsup my entire new pc's content.  This not only duplicates what I already set up but is far more than what I want to backup.  I am now getting a message that I have breached my maximum limit and that I need to pay for an upgrade.

I have tried to delete the folder but unlike those with a folder symbol, this one has the 4 square windows logo and I can't delete it (see screenchost below).  How can I do so?

Hi @gec357,

Take a look here. 😉 Your status seems very similar. Do it on the your new machine.

Hope this helps.
