What happens to my files if I discontinue Dropbox

What happens to my files if I discontinue Dropbox

I no longer want to use Dropbox.  How do I make sure that none of my folders/files are deleted from my PC when I discontinue?

If I understand how Dropbox works currently everything is on the Cloud for backup but will I lose my folders/files from my hard drive or will they still be accessible to me.  My husband is extremely upset that certain files transferred to Dropbox and didn't stay private.

Help!

Hey @driemer5981, thank you for posting your question here.  

Provided that your account is ever downgraded, Dropbox will not delete any of your files.

If you're over your storage quota when your subscription expires, you simply won't be able to sync your files but they'll remain accessible through the Dropbox website. 

Don't hesitate to get back to us if anything comes up.
