Why can some foldern NOT be deleted?

New member | Level 2

Hello there,

 

I have no clue why, but there is a new folder in my dropxbox which has an apple icon and it automaticaly saves many folders (for example my desktop) online. I have no chance to delete this connection. Can you held me with this?

 

Best,

Jennifer

Hi @Jennifer_jj; welcome to our Community and thanks for using Dropbox!

 

It sounds like you somehow enabled the computer backup feature on your Mac device.

 

Can you take a look the relevant documentation (there are steps on how to disable the feature there if needed) and let me know if that's the case? 

 

Thanks!
