I tried again, even tho I unchecked everything it says 46 minutes left for back up. WHY?
Why if I uncheck Desktop, every time I resume backup do the icons get a green check. Why when I delete a file in DP folder does it also delete in the real folder? WHY? Why is it backup up 3.5GB? WHY?
The blue thing keeps going around and around.
When I put mouse over icon I get this.
But if I delete a file in C:\Users\junk4\Dropbox\My PC (W20)\Desktop it deletes it in the real Desktop. So not sure what to do. When I stop the synch the green checks disappear.
PLEASE HELP ME. I WANT TO DELETE THE MY CP(W20). I CANNOT DO THAT WITHOUT DELETING THE ACTUAL FILES.
Can I delete files on my phone? Will that delete them on my computer. If not how do I get the MyPC off my computer and DB. Thank you
I really need help with this. PLEASE HELP ME. I need to get this fixed and move on with my life. I keep getting messages from DB, but I am unable to fix them. I cannot change the Desktop, as I get an error message, see old messages here about that.
I cannot figure out a way to release my desktop from DB. PLEASE HELP.
Thanks @Daphne I have tried so many things, and I keep digging a deeper hole.
Currently my desktop has gray - on the icons. I just downloaded a file and it showed up in both User/junk4hDesktop AND C:\Users\junk4\Dropbox\My PC (W20)\Desktop When I deleted it from Dropbox/My PC it also deleted it from the real desktop.
So I need to delete My PC from my computer without losing everything.
Also, when I go on the app on my phone, it now says My PC does not exist, it was under recent when I opened it just now, but now is gone. Same when I open DB on Firefox on my computer My PC is gone and I am using .3% of 2.2GB used per my phone app.
It seems if I delete the file on my computer I will lose all my desktop files.
I am thinking if I delete the app on my computer,like I did before, that might help. But I think not.
I have had to rearrange my icons 9 times, which is frustrating. I just want to release my computer from DB. How can I do that?
@DaphneI just tried moving the My PC to a thumb drive. It looked good but when I clicked on junk4/desktop I got this message
Clicking on a file on my desktop I get Directory is no Good.
This is why I keep asking how I can get DB to let go of my desktop. It just wont do it. Please help me.
And now My PC is back in DB under my files and all the icons have green checks. So back to where I was AGAIN. I cannot remember how I got it to unsynch, I keep going arond and around and around.
@Lusil @jane @jay @Walter It is really frustrating that with all my posts and all the time I have wasted. I cannot get a person from support to contact me in a real way, (the emails from so-called support are not able to deal with real and unusual problems). If someone called me, I would think they would be able to fix this quickly. Meanwhile, I have been dealing with this for almost 2 weeks.
