    Hi, I used to have drop box a long time ago and I don't use it anymore. I have reinstall mac OS several times after I stopped using drop box. But I just spotted a folder named drop box in the public directory (/username/public). How is this happening? Is this drop box folder something related to the drop box app? If then how is it being created even after a clean installation of the mac os ?

    Does that mean this folder is a part of the OS ? And it doesn't have any connections with the drop box application?

    It may be helpful to note that the application is one word and the OS function/capability is two words. It's easily seen, the confusion, that is…
