I'm trying to undo what I did in error. In order to do that, I have to have the desktop application open, so I can undo the backup. But I had already uninstalled the application, so now I need to reinstall it. So I downloaded the app, ran the .exe, unchecked the boxes for my PC folders, and bypassed the 'mobile app' question.
Then I clicked on the Dropbox icon in the application list (it wasn't on my taskbar), and instead of opening the app, it goes to the dropbox folder:
As I recall, when I downloaded it before, it did the same thing when I tried to install the desktop app.
So, I then went to my downloads folder, where I see this:
I did click on that file to try to install it (yeah, I know, typical user frustration), and I got a popup saying it was installing Dropbox, but it just sat there and didn't end up installing it.
UPDATE: In an effort to 'fix' this, I have now gone to my Dropbox account and 'unlinked' both of my laptops.
1. Can I now delete the files in the online Dropbox without eliminating the files on my laptops?
2. Also, the main reason I signed up for Dropbox is because Quicken said they have added a feature to use Dropbox to backup the Quicken files. Do I now need to do something to get that to work?
