My drop box is full message!  the reason, DBx uploaded my entire computer, apparently, twice! In the list of uploads it shows all folders plus a separate folder for every file in the computer again. Can I delete this "computer" folder without deleting from my actual PC?

Hey @ksmith26, thanks for reaching out. 

If you have computer backup enabled, then you'll have a folder called "My PC" which contains computer folder (like Downloads and Desktop). 

In this case, if you don't want to continue using it, you can turn it off by following the steps listed, here

During this, you'll be given the option to move your files back to their original location. 

Give it a shot and let me know how it goes, cheers!
