can I trash Computer backup.dbx-backup?

Collaborator | Level 9

Hi, 

even though I chose not to backup my computer, I find three new files in my Dropbox:

Computer backup.dbx-backup

Passwords app.dbx-passwords

Vault.dbx-vault

Can I trash them without Dropbox malfunctioning? thanks

Thanks for the screenshot @g v.!

 

If you don't want to see these icons, you can delete them from the Dropbox folder. This won't affect the features themselves if you have them enabled or not already.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi @g v., thanks for posting today!

 

Are these physical files located in your Dropbox folder, or are they only visible on the Dropbox site?

 

Could you attach a screenshot showing this, while hiding any other personal info, in order to assist further?

 

Keep me posted!

thanks for replying, it looks like this. I'd prefer to have only my four folders inside ~/Dropbox.
