I attempted to sync my iMac with my iPhone so my iPhones pics/files would show up on my iMac desktop. Instead, everything on my iMac desktop was removed and it looks like they're all in dropbox. That's not what i wanted!
I need to get my desktop back and detached from dropbox.
I cannot create any new folders on my desktop either. What a mess!
I cannot get my files back to my iMac desktop. I've been told to click the bacckups tab to manage and shut off backup up to dropbox.
I have NO packup tab in my desktop app for my personal profile.
Somebody please help me.

Keep in mind, that it seems like you're using our website online, not the Dropbox desktop application.
You'd need to follow any steps, and actions there.
