If I delete pictures from my Dropbox account, will it also delete them from Win7 folders and iPad Photostream?


So long as the desktop/iPad is connected to your Dropbox account, yes, deleting them from Dropbox account online will delete them from your desktop/iPad.

  • Thanks much for replying to my question. May I ask, how do I disconnect my desktop/Ipad from my Dropbox account? Thanks, Howie

Deleting photos from Dropbox will delete it from any synced folders like those on your Windows machine.

It will not delete any photos from your iPhone/iPad albums or Photo Stream. In fact, as of iOS 7 no iOS App Store apps are able to delete photos from iOS devices because there is no public Apple API to do this.
