One of my computers needs to go for repair. I am concerned about keeping my dropbox stuff private and secure.  I assume that to do this, I must therefore remove (or empty) my dropbox folder?

What's the best way to remove the dropbox folder with my files in that will ONLY remove them from this computer?  (Some files are in shared folders, others are just folders that I can access on all my computers).  Thanks for your advice.
