According to this Help Center Article:  https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/desktop/cache-folder

you can delete the cache.  Try deleting the cache folder as shown in the article and see if this changes anything

I cleaned the cached files, and it helped a bit. 

However, it seems that my Dropbox files (approx. 172 MG - see screenshot) remain located on my local drive (181 GB of documents), because, appart of Dropbox I now have a very limited amount files on my local drive.

There is.  Theres a feature called Selective Sync.   In the settings, you go to Sync tab, and go to Selective Sync.  You select which folder that you WANT to see on your Hard Drive.  The folders that is not picked, the Client will delete from Harddrive but will keep on the cloud.  This sounds like what you want.

More info here: https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/sync-uploads/selective-sync-overview
