Hi Jay, thanks for replying.
I managed to fix the issue i was having. Sorry to trouble you 🙂 Had to reinstall dropbox, sync the folders back up, then uninstall it through windows.
Yes, the trouble was 3rd party uninstallers (in this case revo) and its particularly violent scrubbing
Posting for anyone who has the same issue with a Mac...
When I Deleted dropbox (just put it in trash and emptied the trash as instructed) it also deleted the 'Downloads', 'Desktop' and 'Documents' folders from the hard drive ( ...Users/yourUsername/ or just Cmd+Shift+H in Finder)
Then there were only (locked) links that redirected to the dropbox file locations. Because they were locked, I could not delete the links nor would it allow me to create new file folders with those names. To unlock, select the icon and select File > Get Info (or Cmd+I), click the box unlock and delete the link. The Mac will automatically create a new file folder (except it didn't do it for Desktop so I had to create that one manually)
Same issue here but I didn't use a third party uninstaller, I lost all my downloads and when I downloaded one thing... It was all gone 😞 Please help!!! Please tell me dropbox can help
