I am using selective sync. There is a folder on my dropbox cloud that is NOT sync to my dropbox folder on my mac. How can I get the folder and its contents to sync back to my mac dropbox folder?

Thanking you in anticipation.

Hello @martin_e_f, is the said folder selected for syncing in your mac? If not, you can select it by opening Dropbox Preferences (Click the Dropbox icon in your menubar → Click your profile/account on top right → then Preferences), go to Sync tab → and Choose folders.  More info here - https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/sync-uploads/selective-sync-overview
