Hey @LAURENTC, thanks for posting your question to our Community.

 

There are two ways you can go about this, depending on how much content you have.

 

If it's not too much, you can download your files from our website directly.

 

If you have lots of files, I would recommend the Dropbox desktop app.

 

The app downloads all your Dropbox files to your computer in a folder named "Dropbox".

 

Just make sure to choose to sync the files as "available offline", when you install the app, to ensure that you have the full versions of your files.

 

Let me know if you have any questions!
