Re: How do I get photos out of dropbox and on my hard drive

Hey ttchelossi

 

Welcome aboard! 

 

If you have installed the desktop application on your computer, then you can move move the contents to a location outside the Dropbox folder, which will automatically be perceived by Dropbox as a deletion. The files will remain on your computer, though no longer stored online. 

 

If you need more details about it, just let me know! 

 

Warm regards,
