My Hard drive recently crashed and I ended up replacing my computer.  I down loaded Dropbox on my new computer.  I have very few files in my Dropbox basic but it is telling me that it is full.  It looks like I may have mistakenly linked all files on my hard drive to Dropbox.  I say this because I now have a blue icon on all of my document files on my hard drive.  How can I reverse this?
