Could you clarify for me what issue you're running into when trying to open the files in Dropbox? Since you mentioned that your GSuite subscription ended, it suggests that your Dropbox has a Business subscription.
To use the Google integration within Dropbox, it's required for you to have a GSuite subscription as mentioned here.
These files reside in your Dropbox account, and your Google account is needed just to allow you to be able to edit the files through the integration.
Thanks Daphne - the issue I have is that we cancelled the GSuite subscription and now the files in Dropbox will no longer open (they take us to a Google logon - when I login it says the accoutn is suspended).
How do I break the link between GSuite and Dropbox so I can just access my files in Dropbox again?
To open the Google sheets from Dropbox, you need to have a connected Google account as Dropbox can't be used to open and edit these files, only preview them.
Due to this, you'll need a connected Google account and Google requires you to have a GSuite account since you also have a Dropbox Business subscription.
If you no longer plan to use GSuite, then I'd have to suggest converting the gsheet files in your account to another format, perhaps Excel .xlsx files, so that you can instead use the Microsoft integration to edit the files online or locally.
However, please bear in mind that Microsoft also requires you to have an Office license too for the online integration with a Dropbox Business account. You can check out more info on this here.
In case anyone else is searching for clarification, the files in Dropbox *are* the actual files, but if you have this Google integration they will only open up if the linked account is still a valid GSuite account.
I had cancelled my GSuite account, and this made the files in Dropbox inaccessible.
Google fixed this for me by making my cancelled GSuite account a 14 day free trial account - I was immediately able to open the files on Dropbox then, at which point I exported to .xlsx and saved locally 🙂
