How to remove folders from Dropbox automatic synchronization ?

How to remove folders from Dropbox automatic synchronization ?

Hi,
I've installed dropbox and by accident I added these two folders to synchronization - Desktop and Documents.
I'm not able to remove them from sync.
Could anyone help?

Thank you in advance!

Hello there:

1. Backup the contents of Desktop and Documents 

2. Go to settings: click the Dropbox icon in the menubar/taskbar → click the profile icon → select Preferences

3. Navigate to Backup tab, and uncheck the folders. 

Once you uncheck, it might delete those folders from you computer, so make a backup beforehand.
