How can I stop syncing my Desktop folder with Dropbox?

New member | Level 2

Please help!

I am trying to stop my desctop on mac from auto-syncing.

Under the suggested Preference tab I only find the option to turn on smart sync.

But no option to stop a particular folder from auto syncing.

When I want to manually delete a folder, I only have the option to delete it from the hard drive and dropbox.

I cannot find the "sync tab".

Hi @sarahyona; welcome to our Community and happy Monday!
 

As it sounds like you're referring to our computer backup feature, I'd suggest taking a look at the relevant Help Center article as I believe you'll find all the information you need there: 

Let me know if you have any follow up questions, Sarah.
