I have a similar issue... I have several folders (including files) that are syncing correctly. But, I don't want to sync these folders to my MacBook Pro for space reasons. However, the folders are not showing up in the Selective Sync settings so I can't uncheck them...
Just for the head count: I'm having the exact same problem here.
BOTH on my personal and on my (kinda new) Business accounts.
Someone from Dropbox really need to comment on this and show that they are taking this serious – not just "have you tried rebooting?"
So this appears to be because the folder list displays and then continues to load more folders but has very little feedback. I thought this was a problem and then i noticed in tiny font on the top of the window it said "Loading more folders..." I waited 10m and eventually my folders showed up.
Same problem here for over a year now. Everytime I use these settings, it needs to reload the entire folderstructure for about 30 minutes. Please fix this.
