Smart Sync Large Files

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi.

I have just bought a new mac book pro and I have installed dropbox and allowed smart sync. The problem is, for some reason, it has saved all of my very large work files locally and taken up all of the memory on my computer. 

When I click on the file it says that is has smart synced. 

Can anyone help?

Cheers.

Right-click (or Control click) the file(s) and select Online-only from the Smart Sync menu.
