Hello, my dropbox is pulling all of my files from my computer into my drobox automatically. ie. my documents, downloads, desktop etc. i do not want this and this is causing my dropbox to be full. i only want files in my dropbox that i choose to move into it. but i can't seem how to change dropbox from automatically including all of my computers contents. how do i make it so dropbox does not have everything and only what i want? Also if i try to delete out of dropbox, like my documents out of dropbox it deletes the my documents folder and all the file off the computer and i don't want this.
Hi @beachman1, thanks for posting on the Community!
It sounds like you enabled the automatic computer backup feature in the Dropbox desktop application. Could you first try disabling the computer backup from Dropbox using the steps in the above article to see if this helps?
Afterwards, you'll get the option to move the folders and files back to their previous locations, which will also delete them from the Dropbox account online.
