Hi @ShellyL,

In short, before you uninstall the application make sure all your files are in sync on their respective local places. Finally - uninstall it. 😉 That's it.

You can be sure all files are in sync locally by make sure your Smart Sync got turn off and no one folder is deselected out from Selective Sync. To be sure all files are in their respective places, make sure your application Backup feature is turn off. At the end just wait for state to get up to date and you can remove the application without worry for files troubles.

Hope this helps.
