Remove folders from computer but leave in Dropbox for others

Remove folders from computer but leave in Dropbox for others

I have a shared dropbox. I want to remove folders from my computer but leave them in dropbox for others to see and use. I have done it before, but I can't remember what I did. Dropbox is telling me I am out of room. Can anyone help?

Hi @RFlowers,

That could be done using "Selective Sync".

The above gonna free some space on your computer, but if the "room" is the space in your Dropbox account, then it won't help; in such a case you need more space on your account, not on your computer.

Hope this clarifies matter.
