Moving Dropbox Folders to the Desktop

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Two months ago, my laptop was about to die, so I moved my desktop files to Dropbox. The tech said they would be lost in the repair process.

 

My question is: Is there a way for me to move these files back to my laptop without having to move each file individually? Any methods or suggestions are appreciated. Regards, txsaviorfaire.

Download and install the Dropbox client on your laptop, and everything in your account will automatically download to the Dropbox folder that gets created.
