I am just tech literate enough to know when yet another god **bleep** trick is being played on me by a subversive tech company. I am just at my wits end. If i want to remove a file from dropbox, i get to do it. I do not want dropbox to be backing up my desktop files. I just dont. I dont like it, didnt ask for it, and dont understand why these tech companies have become so entitled as to think that they can just keep whatever files they want on their service against my will. It is baffling. How the hell do you tell dropbox to literally step back from my f-ing files that i dont want them to have in their cloud.
I have been trying for hours to figure it out but they are so godamn non=transparent, it is just a lost cause. This is the future i guess. Fun.

But you did enable it, because it's not enabled by default. During installation Dropbox asks if you want to enable the computer backup feature. If you no longer want the files backed up, you can simply turn off that feature.
