Using selective sync but dropbox still keeping non selected files on my HD.

Using selective sync but dropbox still keeping non selected files on my HD.

Explorer | Level 3

Ive selective synced only 3 folders out of about 15. But dropbox has failed to remove the unselected folders from my HD. It shows most of the unchecked folders, but not all of them. Selective sync shows only the three i chose to select as available. But through my dropbox on my finder menu, it shows most of the unselelected files. I want it to function as i understand it should, with only keeping the selected files available so i dont use up all my disc space. Any solutions? Seems like a fail to me.

Do the unchecked folders still have the green check mark on them, or do they have a gray circle with a line through it? When you hover your cursor over the Dropbox icon in your menu bar, what does it show for a status?
