Delete Dropbox from Mac

Delete Dropbox from Mac

I will gift my computer, so I will restore it. I have two Dropbox accounts (personal and work) linked on my MacBook but I am very scared to delete it, because I don't know if it will delete all my files. How can I log out and delete the app without risking any files of being deleted. 

Thanks

Hi there @joseggonzalezl; thanks for posting on our Community!

To get to the chase, you'll first need to unlink your accounts through the app's preferences.

Once this is done, you can go ahead and delete your Dropbox folder from your computer without affecting your Dropbox files. 

Let me know if you have any more questions, Jose.
