Selective Sync issues

Selective Sync issues

Helpful | Level 5

When I installed Dropbox to my new laptop I accepted the option to save my photos only to the cloud using the Selective Sync. I now want to have them stored on my computer too but when I click on the checkbox to next to a photo file folder only some of the photos in the file have moved to my device. What am I missing?

I figured it out. I saw the check marks and thought the folders had been moved to local. But when I right clicked on them I got the sync option to move them to local and the check mark circle turned solid green after the files synced.
