Once gets in sync, you can use Selective Sync to free up the spaces engaged for the "local backup" folder of your external hard drive.
Hope this helps to some extent.

What you mean "D server"? 🤔 Here I'm supposing your Windows D partition, where your Dropbox folder resides on.

Hope this gives the right directions.
