The smart sync isnt freeing up hard drive disk space. See the steps below. .
1) I download files that increase storage space
2) Automatic smart-sync detects these files and says "syncing X number of files left...."
3) After finishing , the hard drive space does not free up.
In addition to the above, when I select the download folder, I see multiple "green check mark" icons , even though it says "up to date" at the bottom taskbar when I hover over dropbox icon.
And finally when I right click on the individual files that display the green check mark, they instantly go from showing a check mark to the online only gray cloud icon, but yet, the hard drive storage again does not clear up after doing this. Also, the fact that it instantly goes from the green check mark to the cloud is weird in it self because if the file is local only , shouldn't it have some lag/delay in taking time for it to upload to dropbox.com? since it does take a while to sync files in smart-sync after you download files
