I can't find the tab to manage backup om iMac

I can't find the tab to manage backup om iMac

I mistakenly told dropbox to sync my documents and other files on my iMac. I want to stop it and never turn it on again. I can't find how to stop syncing. Also I read anything I remove from dropbox will be deleted from my  computer also. Can someone please lead me through how to stop sync for now.

Hey @Ozzie446, thanks for your post!

You should be able to disable the computer backup feature, by following the steps here.

You mentioned, though, that you can't find the Backup tab in your Dropbox preferences, what options do you see instead? Can you send me a screenshot?

Thanks!

I shutdown and restarted my computer, and reopened the app and then I was able to stop the backup. Thank you for responding to my message.
