Hi there, @mikydoes.
 
If you are using the web, you can move the subfolder to the top level with these steps:
 
  1. Select the subfolder by checking the box to the left of it.
  2. Click Move from the right side of the page.
  3. Where you see the folder path, click the level above the current folder (if you want the folder in the top level of your account, click “Dropbox”)
  4. Click Move
 
If you are using the Dropbox desktop app, then you can simply drag and drop the subfolder into the correct location, or copy and paste it then remove the original.
 
Let me know how you get on with this - Thanks!
