Hi there, I accidentally downloaded my whole dropbox folder and saved it locally. Of course my local hard drive is full now so I need to delete these documents again from being saved locally. I used selective sync to remove the folder from being stored locally. When I go into my dropbox desktop app the folder now does not show up anymore (as intended) but when I check my Macs available storage space it still shows. Do I have to delete these files locally as well or how can I remove them from my local hard drive and save them purely online on my dropbox?
Hello @3SEIF, it could be that the files are still in the Dropbox cache. Dropbox clears it after certain time. If you want to manually clear it, you can go to Finder. Click the Go menu then Go to Folder (Command + Shift + G) and type/paste ~/Dropbox/.dropbox.cache There you can delete the contents.
