When I move to trash, it immediately appears again. If I close the app, i can delete, but as soon as i restart the app it reappears on my desktop.
I have adjusted all preferences and settings...how to I delete and remove this unsightly abomination on my desktop?
Hi @jaimeeking, I hope you're doing well today!
Did you possibly enable the computer backup previously to backup your Desktop folder? This would be the only Dropbox feature that could make any changes outside of the Dropbox folder.
If so, can you let me know if you moved the backed up files from the "My Mac" folder in Dropbox back to the original location on your computer?
I'm wondering if perhaps this is a shortcut to a file or perhaps an icon for an app that may have been moved to Dropbox when being backed up.
Otherwise, can you send me a screenshot of this icon and the Properties of the files?
Keep me posted!
