I need help to free up space on dropbox. When I delete files on dropbox It deletes them from my pc. When I go to unsync my pc it tells me in Selective Sync that unselected folders wont appear on this computer. Dropbox is feeling virusy. How can I unsync completely and have it not affect my pc? I appear to be alone in this desire since I cannot find info on doing this.
You are not alone in this desire. I too need to free up space on my PC but am worried about that if I unsync the shared folder that it will delete or change the shared folder. None of my files show the "cloud" symbol so I can't tell if they are online only or not
Before making major changes with the sync test with one file or folder that it actually works. I just de-selected several folders from my local drive but they all now remain there, only with label "Ignored Item Conflict) and I'm not anymore sure if any changes made in either end will apply. In my case this is the desktop app on macOS 10.15.6
