Linux Computer Backup is taking up my Dropbox space

Linux Computer Backup is taking up my Dropbox space

I tried to install Dropbox Backup in my Linux Mint computer, not realizing it would send me over my size limit. So now Dropbox is not operating.

How do I remove Dropbox Backup?

Maybe its installation stopped when my Dropbox hfolder reached its size limit?

Hey @jharlanherb, thanks for reaching out to us.

 

Would you mind clarifying how you were able to turn on the backup feature on your Linux computer?

 

Also, what do you see in your backups page here?

 

Let me know and we'll go from there.

I think I activated Dropbox Backup through a page like the one your link goes to.

What I see is

Backups

 
 

All your files. Automatically backed up.

Never lose track of your files or folders again. Or forget to pull them into Dropbox. Dropbox Backup does it automatically.

--

Your system altered the appearance, no image, no bolds or larger fonts.

Hi @jharlanherb, it shouldn't be possible to activate Dropbox Backup on a Linux device. Are you seeing any backups on the page my colleague mentioned?

 

Could you attach a screenshot showing this page which is for the total quota on your account?
