How do I get the "Delete from Everywhere" prompt back?

How do I get the "Delete from Everywhere" prompt back?

A message popped up when I was deleting a photo on my hard drive in the Dropbox folder that said, "Delete everywhere?" I said yes and then it asked if I wanted to never see this again and I said yes. But now I'd like to have that option back!!! How can I restore that option as to whether I want to delete everywhere or not?  Thank you!

Go into Dropbox Preferences. While on the Account tab, press ALT+H (Option+H on a Mac?) to bring up additional Support Features. One of the buttons that appears will say Reset File System Warning options.

Here is the prompt

I looked through all the dropbox settings and did not find anything myself.

Maybe an uninstall/reinstall?
