Hi, I do not want my files to be on dropbox. How do I keep them only on my computer without making a mistake and deleting them please?

Hello there, when you have installed Dropbox in your computer, it has created a folder named Dropbox in your computer hard drive (by default under the user home folder). Anything you put inside this folder is being synced with the cloud and other connected devices. If you do not want certain files to be synced/uploaded to the cloud, you can simply move them out of the Dropbox folder to another location in your computer.
