I'm looking for a way to unsync a specific folder on my Dropbox account. This folder is my Macbook laptop folder, it is so huge and also completly unnecessary and unsafe to sync.
I've tried to follow the steps related with it, but I dont know why, I'm not seing option to unsync it in the web page and also in the app in my laptop.
Someone can help me to solve it? I really need to do it.

Hi Walter, thank you so much for the support.
Just to let you know, in the Desktop Dropbox App and also in the Dropbox website I don't know why, but for this specific folder, I'm not seeing the unsync option. For all other folder and files I can see it without problems.
I've attached a printscreen just to show you what I'm seeing when I try to unsync it.
Hi Здравко, thank you for the advice, I will be more carefull before I agree with a feature, I really accept that!
The problems here is that, even if I accepted it in the past, I'm not able to updated it to unsync it. Everyime when I went to the backup option and unchecked it the folders the problems did not solve. There is no button to save the option to uncheck theses folders and when I came back to the backup screen the folders are checked again.
I really want to know if I'm miss something, but it looks like a kind of bug of the Dropbox.
According your screenshot, you haven't set up Dropbox backup. That's why you haven't "Save" button; there is nothing to save. Instead, on the same place you have "Set up" button.
Why is this? 🤔 You have done something aside of the right way. There are different options. You might forcibly have unlinked your application before turn your Backup off, for example (or something similar). In such a way the new setup don't have any idea about already set up Backup. Investigate, what really got done. May be you have to set up (revert back) your folders location by hands. Make sure those folders are set up in correct place in your system settings. Change the settings where needed. Make sure on those places are real folders, not some links!
Good luck. And again - be careful.
