SmartSync and Local Only

SmartSync and Local Only

New member | Level 2

I see SmartSync when I right click a file or folder in Dropbox. But when I want to choose online only it is not an option. I only see local as an option. I have full permissions and I do not have any other applications running. I need to free up space on my Mac which is running High Sierra 10.13.6. Any suggestions?

Have you made sure it is fully enabled? https:confused face:/
