Got an idea for Dropbox? We want to hear it. Our team will review the top voted ideas, so share them here!
When deleting "online-only" files or folders, I got asked for confirmation with a pop up, but there is no "do not show this next time" checkbox.
I know what I'm doing when I delete files and I don't need Dropbox to babysit me.
How can I make that popup go away forever?
Thank you for your idea, while we can’t take every idea forward we do regularly re-review and will update you if anything changes!
Hey @grimhike; thanks for posting your thoughts about this!
I see this issue still hasn't been addressed. The delete prompt is infuriatingly obnoxious and can't be difficult to turn off. What gives?
I'm also tired of Dropbox of treating me like I'm an idiot. Good to see they don't actually care about this and instead reply with generic copy/paste support messages to dismiss the idea. At least there's consistency, the software treats you like you're an idiot so the support team does too.
Nearly every time I delete a folder (which is often), I get a popup asking for confirmation.
"This folder will be deleted from your DropBox account.
Because it has online-only files, it won't be moved to your Recycle Bin, but recently deleted files can be restored on dropbox.com."
I never want to see this dialog again. Add a checkbox for those of us who do not need this message to be able to turn it off. Or add the option in Notification settings. I'm sure a lot of people would appreciate it.
I'd also like to SUPER-VOTE for this. It's ridiculous that there isn't an option to disable this nonsense.
Casting another vote for this. Feels like an extremely user-hostile pattern and I'm honestly amazed there's no "don't ask me again" option.
How much more support does this need?
Just reporting that this is still an enormous pain in the backside. Looking forward to this "feature" being "fixed".
please stop this
