New Mac mini M1 / Dropbox backups

New Mac mini M1 / Dropbox backups

Guenter2
Explorer | Level 3

Hi!

My problem is, that I have just installed my new Mac mini M1 computer, and now, all of a sudden, dropbox (which I use for many years on my other apple devices) makes backups from everything I put onto my desktop. I surely made a mistake while installing dropbox on the new Mac, but I do not know how to change this into the following: I want all backups from my new Mac mini being done to my iCloud and not to my dropbox. I just want to put data and files onto my dropbox if necessary and not using it as a cloud system. How can I change that? Sorry for my English, I am from Germany. 🙂
