First of all, thank you so much for that advice. The instructions
were very clear. I did it all by my self and it was not difficult
I'm interested in knowing about degoo, what is that APP? Is it
accesible with NVDA?
Thanks in advance

This is why I'm switching everything over slowly
to degoo. Email me in private for an invite link. We could
get a conversation started to get the appsmore accessible if
they are not already.

What does that mean?
Nothing, except that dropbox remembers every device and
session ever made.
So you reformat your computer or change your account name,
or get another computer and don't unlink first, your
device becomes a ghost device same with app programs, and

The easiest way to do this is to login with your own
client, click the tray icon and launch dropbox.
Now near the top of the page is a menu called my account
hit space on that, scroll down to settings, hit shift
space to exit forms mode then hit enter.
Don't move about else things will just not work right.
Now dropbox settings load.

Then disconnect every app you don't use and service.
If you need to link devices take note of the devices you
want to connect.
A basic user can connect up to 3 devices.
Those can be a computer, a phone and one other device or 3
You can buy, but to be honest, if you get this warning and
are only using 1 device, then you probably have a lot of
I'd also update your password at this time if you have
forgotten it if you havn't allready.
I'd also check to see if you know what all the devices you
have are, if you find something you don't know, then
chances are someone has hacked your account or you linked
to a device somewhere else.
In a way this while annoying is good in a way.
I had no idea dropbox kept all devices from all reformats
and all times I had changed dropbox.
I had 6 devices, 1 is my device I had.
The next one before that was my old win7 device which I
may relink later.
The rest were my win7 and xp devices and their reformats
including profile changes etc.
My apps were not needed ones and I clobbered them.
As for my brouser sessions including the current one there
were 19 others which were still signed in from devices
that were no longer active.
In the case of my dad's system, there were 2 devices, the
current one, and an older instance of the same device
which existed before it, its good to know that I was able
to kill things.
Now I know about this, if I need to reformat my first
thing after I get back in is to kill the ghost devices
that linger inactive after the fact.
This actually is a good reason to check security on my
account if anything else.
Its worth noting that if you need more space and upgrade
you won't have to bother with this though even if you do
knowing what I had, its worth looking at the site anyway.
I didn't need all those 20 sessions logged in at once,
nore did I need the 6 devices 4 of which were ghosts of
old linked devices and one which is not on the network.
I guess knowing that I could link that one but even so I
will be carefull to check every linked system I service to
make sure its all clear of stuff that shouldn't be on it.
