I installed dropbox with a new user name in order to access shared folders. I hadn't meant to tie my personal files in (desktop and all files on hard drive), but the dropbox immediately became over-filled. I have turned on "selective sync" and deleted the dropbox program from the laptop. Still, it does not allow me to remove the files. They are not shared to anyone, but it takes up space and it's unnecessary.
I re-installed dropbox on the laptop, and elected "Basic" and deselected "My computer", only selected one online folder which is shared. However, "My Computer" still shows and I am unable to delete it from dropbox, either online or on the app.
When I go to Preferences/Import, there are no auto backup options so I can't change that. I uninstalled, reinstalled and the dropbox folder is visible in Explorer, regardless of installation. If I go to sync and uncheck "My Computer" it restores the check for selective sync.
How do you get refocussed while working from home? Do you find any of these options keep you from getting distracted?
