Computer crashed How do I sync the online 2 TB data with the new computer?

Hope someone can help me with this problem I have been trying to find a solution for 6 months now...

My computer crashed, I have the internal drives and a new computer.

Download 2 TB apppears to be be taking a lifetime.

How do I sync the online 2,9 TB data with the new computer? I am almost out of available space... I cannot delete anything that I do not need anymore online, it has to be done from a computer. But such large files downloading takes months.

ers are large Because the foldIs it possible to link the program of Dropbox to the drives I still have? 

Bussiness support could not help. Only that I can delete a bunch of files at the time in Dropbox.com, but these are millions. Some of it in folders of 2 IP-camera's taking pictures every 20 seconds for more than 2 years...

I think then the only way will be to delete via the website but in smaller blocks than you are trying.

I believe a limit of about 10,000 files is imposed on the web. So deleting less than that at one time should work

As you obviously have a high plan have you looked at SmartSync: https://www.dropbox.com/help/desktop-web/smart-sync ?

Thank you Mark, This is how I am trying to get a part synced on my new computer. Not to have it available, but to be able to delete it... But it takes ages and then I only can delete the IP-camera map, as this is the one being synced selectively at the moment. Not a real solution to delete a lot of the online maps I do not need anymore
