The new software version want to sync my entire hard drives and websites. I'm a professional photographer. That will take 3 days, it says. All I want is to upload about 15 photographs so my client can download them. How do I stop global sync and only allow the files I want to be put into Drop Box?

Hey @clearyphoto, welcome to our Community!

It seems you enabled the computer backup feature on your Dropbox application. 

If you don't want your desktop files backed up to your Dropbox, you can disable the feature and move your files back to their original locations. 

Let me know if you have any questions!
