Dropbox installation messed up

I was installing BL on a 2nd machine (as I love it on my laptop)

After the installation,  I said YES I wanted to install Dropbox but didn't authenticated to complete the full activation (in the terminal it said I could login later)

After I was done with installation, I could not find how to continue the Dropbox install so I ran the dropbox py start -i  script as root and Dropox installed and is working

But the Dropbox Folder seem to only be accessible in /root/dropbox and not visible in /home/myuser

How can I fix this ?
Remove it and install it back the right way

Copy the dropbox directory where you want it, change the ownership to yourself, and set the location in Dropbox Preferences  -> Sync

Re: Dropbox installation messed up

...and next time don't run dropbox.py -i as root! Dropbox is a user-level application.
