I want my windows deletion in my dropbox folder to ALWAYS delete everywhere -- without promting me.

Click the Don't ask me this again check box and then select Delete everywhere.

With the latest version of dropbox this option for "Don't ask me this again" doesn't exist. Granted it is a slightly different error message, but still a stuip pop-up. This type of "needing to engage with the user" is driving me nuts, and making me seriously debate switching platforms.

Thanks for the reply. Let me be clear, if this isn't fixed, and quickly, then I'm off of dropbox. It is that disruptive to my workflow. As I'm sure you can see I've been a dropbox user for 7 years and while I understand and can be excited about where dropbox is going and how it is expanding as a tool, being disruptive to the core function is very disenhaeartening.

To help them understand why this is so disruptive, is that I use camera uploads, so it uploads ALL of the pictures I use when I do a site visit. So when I go through my dropbox on my computer to delete the pictures I DON'T need to save or email, getting this pop-up EVERYTIME, is workflow destroying. 


Turn off delete confirmation?

How can I turn off the delete confirmation for all devices?  When I delete a folder from one device, it asks to confirm the deletion and I would not like to have to repeat this for every file I delete.  I have automated deleting files from a folder using code.


Thank you ahead of time for your reply!

The first time the message appears, there's an option to not show the message again. Make sure it's checked before you confirm the deletion. You'll likely need to do that on each computer.
