Well, I did all that is recommended under "How to safely delete dropbox folders from my laptop's hard drive." to remove my local Dropbox and was able to delete to content of the folder "Dropbox" including the folder itself.
However, I cannot get rid of the symlink "Dropbox" on the left panel of the File Explorer (where "Quick access" is, but not a part of it). It shows as a link, doesn't have the Dropbox icon (only the name) and when I click on it, I get the error message "location is not available".
Please help as this is really frustrating.
I did that - no difference.
What I did from "How to run an advanced reinstall of Dropbox"
There is one difference though - don't know if it matters. It says "Note: Don’t delete the main Dropbox folder on your computer. At no point in this process should you be deleting that folder." But, that folder on my computer I was able to delete yesterday after my unliking. So it is no longer there.
So after not so much useful support, here some findings of my own:
However, whether the folder exists or not, the symlink cannot be removed.
