So I'm an intern in a company I logged into the companys dropbox in my laptop but I cant seem to logout of it. I googled the answers and it told me to unlink which i did but then all the company folder is still in my laptop. I want to log out of it and get rid of all the folders without harming any content of the company. help ! 😞

Hey there @NramlynaDali,
 
So unlinking the account would be the first step, which you’ve already done. I would then suggest to uninstall the Dropbox desktop app just to be 100% certain.
 
Once you have done the above you can go ahead with removing the Dropbox folder on your desktop as it will no longer have a link to the Dropbox account, it’s simply just another folder on your desktop.
 
Hope this helps, let me know if you if you have any other questions - Thanks!
