Manage Backup disappears when I press it

Manage Backup disappears when I press it

I've been on Dropbox at least 8 years. I activated the Backup Feature recently and want it offf for a number of reasons.

I go to Preferences:Backups and press the Manage Backup button and the Prefences box disappears entirely and nothing comes back in its place.

 

How do I reverse the Backups?

Is there a Terminal Line command I can paste in (give me all details) or something else you all can point me to? I've ead the psots about relocating the files. But sounds like the applicaiton continues syncing some , so that does not seem like a stable solution.

 

Thanks.

Hi @ExperiencedBut, thanks for posting today!

 

Could you try installing the Dropbox desktop application from this link, while not uninstalling it first, to see if this helps to repair the app?

 

Keep me updated with any progress!
