Disable dropbox service to others users

Disable dropbox service to others users

Hi,

I installed the Dropbox on my windows, the windows has multiple users.

I see on task manager that dropbox service run at all users and this is using a memory.

It's possible disable the dropbox service at others users? I want that only the Administrator can run the service. 

 

Thank you

Hey there @marciofornari, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

Could you just clarify for me if the desktop app is also installed on the other user profiles too, or just on your admin profile?

 

For the app to be used on the different profiles, the app would need to be installed on each profile.

 

Let me know and we can go from there!

Hi @Daphne 

It was installed only at Admin profile. The windows is a Windows Server and works with RDP

Thanks for the support

Thanks for getting back to me here @!

 

Can you let me know if you see Dropbox possibly enabled within the startup items for these profiles? You can check out these steps to find the enabled startup items if you're not familiar.

 

Keep me posted with your findings!
