deleting folders from a computer when you ruse multiple computers. Does it delete from all?

deleting folders from a computer when you ruse multiple computers. Does it delete from all?

New member | Level 2

I use multiple computers for dropbox. One computer needs more space for so I deleted the dropbox app (I don't really need it on that computer) but the dropbox folders remain. If I delete those from the computer I don't need them on, will it also delete the files from all my computers ?

A pop-up dialogue box usually asks if you want to "Delete Everywhere". Hope that answers your question.

If you uninstalled Dropbox from the computer, then you can safely delete the Dropbox folder that remains. Your other devices will not be affected.
