Hello, I would appreciate your help, I'm not very familiar with the platform. I only downloaded it a few days ago. I accidentally selected the synchronization of my deskstop on which I have 2 very heavy folders. Now Dropbox is synchronizing them I see them partially uploaded on the platform and I don't see them on the desk anymore. They have been in these conditions for 2 or 3 days. I would like to go back without losing any files. Ie do not synchronize any desk file what can I do? Thanks to all.
