How to Remove a Link to a File or Folder in Dropbox?

Dropbox allows you to share photos, videos, files and folders with others using a 'Shared link'. If you remove a link, then it will immediately disable link to your file or folder. If someone tries to open the link will get an error message informing them that the 'Item has been moved or deleted'. You can remove a link from the 'Links' page located at the sidebar on the Dropbox website. You can re-enable a link once it has been removed. If you want to share a link to a file or folder, then simply create a new link.

Following are the steps to Remove a Link to a File or Folder in Dropbox:

From the Links Page:
  1. Go to & sign in to your account.
  2. Click "Links" in the sidebar located at the left of page.
  3. Browse the file or folder to remove.
  4. Click "X" to the right of your chosen file or folder.

From the Preview Page:
  1. Click on the link to the file or folder.
  2. Click "Gear" icon located at the top-right of the page to open the settings menu.
  3. Select "Remove link".

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
