Uninstall Dropbox on Mac
To remove Dropbox from your Mac do the following:
- Quit the Dropbox (click on its icon in the Menu bar, go to Settings, and then quit).
- Remove the app from the Application folder to the Trash
- After that, your folder with all files still remains on your hard drive, you can also trash it.
So say Dropbox website, yet in reality, this method is not working. If you do this when you attempt to uninstall the application, the system tells you that it’s impossible as app bound to the application account.
Even after you unbind the account and delete the folder with the files of your Dropbox storage, it still will not be removed. The situation with Google Drive app for Mac is absolutely the same.
Luckily, there is a way
App Cleaner allows you to remove Dropbox and Google Drive. For this purpose all you need to do is 2 things:
- Quit Dropbox or Google Drive application.
- Launch App Cleaner, find Dropbox (Google Drive) in a list and delete.
After that, the application data is completely deleted from your Mac. If you are afraid to lose any sensitive file, it is in vain. Both services are cloud-based and all your data will be restored if you want to re-install them.
