I have turned on selective sync to save room on my hard drive but the files are still on my hard drive even after unchecking them in Dropbox.  Suggestions?

Re: Select Sync not working

Hello there @sarahco, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

Can you let me know what the current sync status of the desktop app is showing?

 

If you re-open the selective sync settings, are the changes that you made previously still applied?

 

Looking forward to hearing back from you!
