How to see whole file structure without having files resident on my computer?

Level 2

I would like to know if it's possible with Dropbox to see the entire file structure without having the documents resident on my computer? The reason I would like this is because I have a new Surface Pro 6 with limited memory, and I want to access my Dropbox files without having to download all the files onto my PC. Thanks!

(P.S. I can do this with CloudStorage, which is where I got the idea from.)

Hey @Sheila2 , thanks for checking in with us on the Dropbox Community; I’d happily follow-up on your inquiry!
 
There is a way to accomplish that with Dropbox indeed Sheila (depending on your plan). The feature you’re referring to is called Smart Sync & is currently available for Dropbox Business and Dropbox Professional accounts. Smart Sync essentially lets you keep all your important files on your pc, without them taking up (almost) any space, while your Dropbox file structure remains intact. 
 
Please let me know if you have any additional questions or you need assistance in any way & I’ll do my best to check back with you asap. Happy Monday!
