How to bring back my old life without dropbox

How to bring back my old life without dropbox

I am new to dropbox so i have no idea what's going on. I synced my file on dropbox but the problem is it's so slow and my laptop began to crash and some of my program is unresponsive. I decided to delete so I unlink first dropbox from my laptop. After that, I'm so confused because the dropbox folder was still there and it's the only folder or location where I can open my files, not in "this Pc" or even "quick access". I want to completely delete dropbox because it makes my laptop slower than before but I'm afraid that I will lose my files. What to do?

Hi @xmxmxddv, thanks for posting on our Community! 

After uninstalling the desktop app, all your files remain on your device.

The only difference is that they will no longer sync to Dropbox. 

Now, with that being said, it seems you've also enabled our Computer Backup feature. Have you tried disabling it prior to the uninstall? 

Let me know!
