I lost my computer or mobile device! How can I delete the Dropbox folder from it?
The admin of a Dropbox for Business team can only use remote wipe to delete a team member's work Dropbox folder from a linked device. If you've connected your personal Dropbox to your work Dropbox, you can use remote wipe to delete your personal Dropbox folder from a device as well.
