How do I unsync all my back up PC files and folders from Dropbox Cloud? I am currently on the free Basic Plan and my current Dropbox storage space is full. If I delete my Dropbox account will this action also permanently delete all the backed up files and folders from my PC?

Hi I was looking at the steps you gave, but there is no settings or security option on my Dropbox app. Could it be a different version?

Hey @JNAZ, welcome to the Dropbox Community! 

If I'm not mistaken, you're referring to our computer backup, right? 

Can you try following these steps? 

Thank you!
