When everything is synced I turn of selective sync on that folder and delete it. A window pops up asking me to either do a online only removal or delete them everywhere. When I cancel the folder is removed from my dropbox.com storage.
I don't want to do an online only folder and I don't want it to delete everywhere. I want to "remove the files from my computer but keep them in my dropbox.com".
when you go into Preferences and go into Selective Sync. You would uncheck the folder that you want GONE on your Harddrive. Then press ok and the Dropbox Client is the one that removes it. Simple. The problem is that you did the action of removing. SO don't do that and let the CLient do the task
