after installing the dropbox-app, it started moving files from standard Windows-directories and copied them to Dropbox, which got overfilled...
When removing them from Dropbox, I also lost them from my computer... Downloads, Documents and Desktop were GONE!!!
Thx to Dropbox-standard I could reinstall the items on dropbox, and downloaded them (.zip) before continuing.. except the ones that would cause overflow again..
It took me whole evening, but I am fed up with the app and removed it. Now there is still a MyPC-directory in my Dropbox-area.
How can I delete that one??? It is completely empty, but there is no Remove-option.... remnant of the app...
some things I see....
1-The X-markes files have no size (to be expected)
2-Some systemdirectories are doubled: see documents, Desktop, Downloads....
the double directories are not accessible (not authorised)
Also, searchbox is not working, Chrome will not start up anymore.
So when i open my computer with 2nd account (administrator), also subdirs are not accessible, and crossed files do not open anymore (some show size 0 kB)
chrome will start under this account. When Dropbox is opened, I see Windows-icon with MyComputer: it's empty, but I cannot delete it.
Seems like account is f*ed up.
it started when dropbox-app started copying an amount of files when space was not available anymore in Dropbox-area: the extra files all show crosses now.
