I have two computers connected to Dropbox (iMac & Macbook). From my MacBook, when I open the Finder and click on the Dropbox folder I see my iMac hard drive. How do I remove my iMac HD from my Dropbox folder?

Hey there @jasonkgreen, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

That does sounds rather strange indeed, would you mind sending me a screenshot of how this looks in your Dropbox folder, excluding any personal info?

 

Is it possible that you may have enabled the computer backup feature in the desktop app which created a "My Mac (device name)" folder in Dropbox?

 

Let me know and we can go from there!
