Dropox automatically dumps all files on my db account to my desktop. How do I (1) prevent db from doing this and (2) delete those files from my desktop without deleting them from the cloud?
Are you referring to files which sync to the "Dropbox" folder on your computer? If you want to save space on your computer but leave the files within Dropbox, you may want to use the "Selective Sync" feature: https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/sync-uploads/selective-sync-overview
