I want to move away from Drop Box for file syncing. I have been using file syncing between and Android device and my desktop for some time. I want to terminate the Drop Box file syncing. When I go to 'File', 'Syncing', it shows the email path and Passphrase, but there do not appear to be any options to change or disable the file syncing. I am using MD 2021.1 (3069). I have backups and know the location of the file storage. Looking for help before I make a stupid mistake.

Thanks

    Load the toolbox extension.
    Advanced mode
    Click the promote to primary button.
    Then you be able to change the sync option.

    Thank you for the prompt response. The toolbox extension looks like it
    will be very helpful going forward. - thank you for your effort.

    question: How do I get into advanced mode? When I start toolbox, there
    are not any options. Immediately I receive a dialog box announcing my
    file is secondary mode. I don't see a promote to primary option. Please
    provide more explicit instructions so that I can better use the toolbox.

    Thanks in advance,

    After launching the Toolbox extension, look on the top left corner. You should find Toolbox Options (right next to HELP). Click on Toolbox Options and in the resulting window, select Advanced Mode.
