I have two Dropbox folders on my computer

Level 4

I moved my DB folder from C: to D: per instructions (preferences --> sync--> move, etc.).

However, a DB folder remained on the C: drive with whatever folders were synced at the time.  How can I get rid of the DB folder on C:.  It's taking up a ton of space.  Can I just delete the folders, since I am no longer synced with the online DB account?

Thank you.

Hi there @kkdkp, thanks for posting your question on the Community! 
 
Initially, I wanted to mention that the Dropbox folder, in general, is just like any other folder on your computer but with syncing capabilities. 
 
For this reason, could you please ensure that the Dropbox folder in your C drive:
  • Isn’t syncing with your Dropbox account?
  • Contains the same/similar files as the Dropbox folder in your D drive?
Could you also send me a screenshot (without any personal info) of the Dropbox folders that you’re seeing? This will give me a better visual understanding of your concern. 
 
Thanks in advance!

Hi Lusil,

Prior to reading your reply, I 'unsynced' all folders except one.  There was no change to the "old" DB folder in C:.  It only affected the DB folder in D: (the one I want to keep).

Unable to upload the screen shots - "An unexpected Error has occurred".

Thank you.
