Dropbox system has created a folder named My PC with subfolders desktop, documents and downloads (is it for synchronization?). I want do delete this folders but they have no option to do this. How to delete it and stop synchronization?
Go to Preferences->Backups and you can control which folders on your computer Dropbox is able to spy on.
This feature should be 100% opt-in and not be enabled by default. Unfortunately we live in the age of data collection and the responsibility to protect our own devices falls to ourselves as individuals.
Uncheck the folders you’d like to stop backing up to Dropbox or uncheckMy Mac/My PCto turn off backup for all folders at once.
ChooseKeep content in folders on this PC/MacorLeave content in Dropbox.
If you chooseKeep content in folders on this PC/Mac, the files and folders you stopped backing up can be found in their original folders on your computer.
If you chooseLeave content in Dropbox, new files you add to those folders will save to their original folders on your computer, but the files and folders you previously backed up to Dropbox with computer backup will remain in your Dropbox account. On your computer, they’ll be accessible by shortcuts, in their original folders, called “My files in Dropbox”.
Note:If you seeSet Upinstead, it means computer backup is already off.
