Does unlinking allow you to safely delete files from Business Dropbox?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

If I unlink my computer from dropbox business, can I safely delete the files without deleting my coworkers files? (computer is currently downloading them and I don't know how to stop it!)

I don't have enough room on my personal computer for the files (couldn't get smart sync to work) but I don't want to delete the files for all of my coworkers. I want to restart the process and try to get smart sync working instead so it doesn't store files on my computer.

Anybody know the details of this process?

Yes, you can unlink and once you've done that you can delete everything at will.
