How can I unlink My PC (LAPTOP-UCTR7OHI) from Drobox... When I installed the app on my computer it linked to my PC... I never wanted that. I would like to undo this...

Hi @Wonway2go, thanks for posting on the Community!

It looks like you enabled the computer backup feature. Could you first try disabling the computer backup from Dropbox using the steps in the above article to see if this helps?

Afterwards, you can move the folders and files back to their previous locations, which will also delete them from the Dropbox account online.

Keep me updated with any progress!

Hi @Wonway2go,

Take a look here. 😉

Hope this helps.

 

PS: Do it on both your PC and laptop.

NM. I found what you're referring to. However, I unchecked the backup files but they keep getting checked off

TY. But I don't have it on my PC.

Could you send over a screenshot of where you're unchecking the folders @Wonway2go?
