Files not uploaded to Dropbox and rearranged on the computer

Files not uploaded to Dropbox and rearranged on the computer

TK in TX
New member | Level 2

After starting Sync the files on my computer were no longer in the order I was used to. The files were rearranged on the computer. 

Also, it created another documents file. A significant set of files were not uploaded to Dropbox. It created a shortcut to the files on the computer that did not upload. A rather large surprise!   Thanks for any help.

Hi @TK in TX; welcome to the Dropbox Community!

It sounds like you enabled the computer backup feature; could you have a look at this Help Center article and let us know if that's the case indeed?

Thanks!
