Re-arranged Desktop

Re-arranged Desktop

New member | Level 2

I just updated Dropbox on my computer and while setting it up, a message popped up that said, "things are going to be moved around during the process, but don't worry, it will go back to the way it was". BUT, it totally screwed up my Desktop and I had things organized exactly where I wanted them! I am really upset and don't want to spend an hour fixing this. Anything I can do?

Hello @ksult, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

It sounds like the computer backup feature was enabled during the set up of the desktop app, and set to sync your Desktop folder.

 

You can follow the steps at the bottom of this article to disable the backup feature.

 

Let me know how it goes!
