Lost all my file on the desktop after downloading dropbox. how that is possible?
Hey @Umberto1234, thanks for reaching out.
It sounds like you may have used computer backup, which adds your Desktop folder to your Dropbox folder.
If you want to move the files back to their original locations and you don't want to use the feature anymore, follow the instructions mentioned in this article to turn it off.
Give it a try and let me know how it goes. Cheers!
