How to sync folders on dropbox but not on my PC yet?

How to sync folders on dropbox but not on my PC yet?

Let's say on our team's dropbox drive there are folders A, B, C. When I setup my PC using smartsync, I chose only to sync folder A, online only. This is mainly for me to send file to the drive (I just drop my file in folder A). I don't see folder B or C in my dropbox folder.

 

Now how do I add folder B to my PC so I can send files into that folder as well?

Hey @bigfiles, I hope you're having a good day!

You can change the folders that sync down to your computer through the selective sync settings.

You'd just need to check the folder you want to sync and let the app do the rest.

Let me know if that does the trick!

Works!

I would never have guessed the feature is inside "preference", and also would never guessed that preference is inside a "<>" (rotate 90 degree) button.
