How to do selective sync with "available online"

How to do selective sync with "available online"

Explorer | Level 3

This is on Windows 10 PC. Let me say that I have 2TB Dropbox and 1TB SSD. I want to make folder A (not all) available on SSD. But when I try to set up Dropbox, it says "there is no enough space" and it will be "online-only." But what I want is

 

*to have folder A available offline

*not other folders at all (no online only).

 

What is the workflow for this?

Set up Dropbox as you are and let it sync everything as Online-only. Then right-click Folder A and set it to Available Offline.

I did right click but do not see "available offline."

Is the Dropbox application running and are you right-clicking a folder that's located inside your Dropbox folder? If so, you should see the Dropbox context menu items. The exact wording you're looking for is Make available offline.

 

The Dropbox context menu items won't appear if Dropbox isn't running, or if you're right-clicking on an item located outside of the Dropbox folder.
