How to Unsync Selected Folders without Deleting them from my Computer

How to Unsync Selected Folders without Deleting them from my Computer

Pvanderv

Dropbox stopped syncing between my devices, so I had to re-install. Then it synced fine, but backed up all the documents in my computer. Now I have exceeded my storage limit.

How can I:

1) Delete all the files from the DropBox servers except the few I want to back up (without deleting them from my computer), and

2) Tell the server to stop backing up the folders I don't want backed up

???

I do not want to upgrade to a higher-storage plan.

Thanks.

You have the computer backup feature enabled.
