The issue in GetHuman1000283's own words
I am trying to get thousands of Nikon Raw files off of my Mac, but have them remain on dropbox. ... I just updated to the new plan a little while ago. I want everything I have in dropbox to stay there unless I go to dropbox and delete it myself.*I have thousands of nef files on my computer that I am trying to delete, but I have to cancel each time because I keep getting the message that it will be deleted in both places. There must be something simple that I am missing. I need help. can someone phone me?*I tried to click on the upload folder to make it permanent, but it did not seem to work.
The instructions are not clear enough.
I want them to phone me and walk me through the process of keeping things on dropbox while I trash them on my MacBookPro
I have had a regular drop box account for about * years.
