Can I get rid of Smart Sync?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi there,

I'd like to remove the smart sync feature on my drop box, as it's meaning I can't access files on my laptop when I'm not connected to wifi.  I'm getting a little white cloud next to my files, even when I've selected that folder to be synced on my laptop, and they won't open without an internet connection.  Is there any way to completely disable the feature so that all my files will download when I have them checked in selective sync? Thanks
