Dropbox files & folders

I'm having a problem lately with my dropbox account.
I have the basic package, so i can only have 2 GB of storage on my dropbox.
This is why I only want the files needed on the dropbox and not my personal documents. But it happens to be that these documents are already on my dropbox. There is a file 'My PC' on dropbox with all my personal documents in it. This file is shared with no one.
I cannot delete the folders/documents from dropbox without deleting them from my local computer storage.
Can anybody help me out? I cannot upload anything now as my storage is full.
Thanks in advance:)
I can't delete a folder that the DropBox app created on its own "My PC (DESKTOP-NA82NRH)" that is ruining my available space and trying to force me to upgrade. This folder actually is my "Downloads" folder on my hard drive. I don't want this folder to be part of my DropBox folder - it is 11.4 Gb which far exceeds my 2 Gb limit on my free account! If this is deleted from my DropBox folder, I will be using up only 1.24 Gb!
Hope you are well.
I've been communicating with one of your help support but it's still not resolved and I urgently need to resolve it.
Dropbox is company account and I'm new to the company...connected to dropbox....then it automatically downloaded files to my laptop....didn't realise it...now my laptop space is full and can't work and save files into my laptop.
I was asked to sign out then I would be permanently disconnected from dropbox account. I don't want to be permanently disconnected. I just want to delete dropbox folder from my laptop BUT if I want to find files in dropbox, I can still sign in and look for the files BUT dropbox should not automatically download files again to my laptop.
Please assist the soonest possible since this back and forth messages with one of your support team has been going on since last week.
