Unaware of how dropbox works completely, hi unknowingly that dropbox back up my desktop. I want it off dropbox. But I need to be positive that it will not delete it from my computer, just from my dropbox. What should I do? I cannot find anyone who can give me a direct answer.

I can't find any of the links you are referring to.  I don't have a dropbox icon on the taskbar.  I can only find how to 'pause' back up, not how to restore. I'm very techy, but I've never been so lost in all the years.  Isn't there a way that anyone can just get my stuff off of there?  I'm thinking of resetting the whole computer as I am totally backed up on Carbonite.  This is a total nightmare.

Hi again @trixi,

I'm tech savvy too, but have no idea how can I "'pause' back up". 🤔 Till now I had no idea it's even possible. Can you post a screenshot showing where you found a way to perform it. 🧐 It can be a good start point to your issue resolving and knowledge exchange too. 🙂 Show clearly the way/windows you are getting to the place of the 'pause' and all menus options/entries selected throughout.

Keep your private data hidden/blurred.
