In windows 7 and 10, should I uninstall the "plus" dropbox app and remove all dropbox folders (150GB) from pc before installing the "professional" app? This is labor intensive as it involves going through the C:\users... and manually deleting as per dropbox instructions. Or is the pro app smart enough to detect the previous installation, add only the new features, and follow the existing dropbox organization. I installed dropbox plus on my D drive because Cdrive is a small SSD. I need to keep the pro app as much off the C Drive as I can.Thanks for any suggestions.

Thanks so much Lusil. You nailed it. My account has changed from plus to pro (I just paid too much) and, to my surprise, I now (30 min later) see that the app shows smartsync. So, there are no changes to the app itself. The app has indeed followed the acct.
Regarding the drives, my boot C drive is a small SSD. There is also an internal Sata drive (D). It seems that one cannot avoid dropbox adding to the boot drive. But, at the final step of app installation, I used the advanced button to install the dropbox folder to the Ddrive. It seems to work fine on D though I know it is taking alot of space on C. Any thoughts on this issue. I realize this is a well-known issue but I'm a fairly new dropbox user. No prob if you pass on commenting. I realize it's a loaded issue. Thanks again!
Here are shots of the 2 drives. It seems that dropbox consumes space on both C and D drives as files are synced to this computer. More space is consumed on D than C but consumption on C due to dropbox is running at ~50% what goes in to D. Smartsync is helping slow down use of Cdrive. Thanks for any comments.
