Copying files from hard drive to Dropbox results in deleted files

I have Windows 10 PS on my laptop and one of the cloud storage options I use is Dropbox.
I have noticed that when I copy a file from my hard drive to a dropbox shortcut, the file on my hard drive is deleted. The same thing happens if I copy an updated file to Dropbox and select the replace option. I have reported this to Dropbox support, but I am not sure that they are taking this seriously. Does anyone else think this is a problem that should be addressed? Check out my write-up below.
You can search for the details of my issue on the Dropbox forum by searching for "Files DO in FACT get deleted in a certain situation that may fool you*.
