How to stop auto sync of Mac files

How to stop auto sync of Mac files

For the life of me I can not figure this one out. Dropbox auto syncs all of my locally stored files on my Mac up until dropbox is full. How do I stop this from happening. I do not want any of my locally stores files on my dropbox. When this happens it uses my entire quota of storage. Someone please help me with this madness.
