I suppose, you use 'Selective Sync'. After such a action all 'deactivated' local folder should be automatically removed. Here bring up reasonable question: What you have 'deactivated' really and what you have 'deleted'?
Just wanted to touch base and see if you were able to solve the syncing issue you were facing.
As @Здравко correctly mentioned, if you selectively unsynced content from your device, you can make the same content local again by going back in to the selective sync settings and selecting it to sync.
If you are concerned with the files taking up a lot of your computer space (and are on a paid Dropbox plan), have a look at our Smart Sync feature. With Smart Sync you can have content online-only, but still keep a visual of your files available locally so as to sync them more easily.
Let me know if I can help with anything else on my end.
