Can I choose what folders can be accessed from different computers?

Can I choose what folders can be accessed from different computers?

My question is very basic. I have 2 personal computers and one from my company. I have Dropbox on all 3, all sync. I don't want my personal folders to appear on my company computer, as there is a small possibility that remote access to that computer by third parties. What I do want, is to be able to access my work folders on my personal computers Is it possible to have everything synced and at the same time prohibit some folders from connecting to one of the computers? Excuse my ignorance, I lack the technical language to better formulate my question. Don't know if I've made myself clear.

Hi @Andrea P.8 

 

Yes you can stop them syncing to the device via https://help.dropbox.com/sync/selective-sync-overview. BUT note that this wouldnt, in theory, stop your employer accessing those files if they wanted to via your device. This is because if they had your device they could just go to the website and view things there that hadnt been sync'd to the machine.
