Update ruined my dropbox folder structure

New member | Level 2

The update today of dropbox app ruined my folder structure. I had all my dropbox files on D drive. After update Dropbox made a new folder on C drive. Started to sync + 500 000 files ... Is it possible to make dropbox understand that I have all my files on D drive and sync from there? Im on win10.

Hi @Svante, thanks for reporting. 

Sorry for the issue you faced, I understand resyncing everything is not convenient at all. This should not have happened with an update though. thinking face

Did you reinstall or unlink and relink on this device maybe?

What is the version of your OS? 

What is the version of Dropbox you have installed there? 

Thanks in  advance for the additional info.
