stop pc from sync

New member | Level 2

I have recently added a computer to our network and every time I try to set it up it wants to sync the entire pc to dropbox.  I have unchecked everything under selective sync so that it won't do this, but it keeps resetting itself and tries to sync the entire pc and eating up all my space.

Hey there @KSSL; thanks for joining our Community!

 

I'm not really sure if that's case, but could it be a prompt to set up the computer backup feature? 

 

Can you send us a screenshot so that we can have a visual too?

 

Thanks!
