Hello there @eport, You can stop the backup feature from your Desktop app settings. First of all make a backup of those Dropbox backup folders (Desktop, Documents, Downloads etc.). If your Desktop app is running, click the Dropbox icon on the menubar → click the profile icon → Preferences. In the Backup tab, you should be able to set which folders to backup or entirely disable. Beware once you deselect the folders it might delete them from your computer, therefore make backup copies beforehand.
