Smartsync confusion

Smartsync confusion

Hi all, I have Dropbox Plus, and Smartsync. I applied Ss to all my dropbox folders, have turned on automatic online, but my Db is stilln trying to sync with my computer, then telling me I am low on space. I'm confused! Shouldn't it have stopped putting stuff on my computer? Thanks!

Hi @scriptcraft, thanks for joining the Community!

When you enabled Smart Sync, did you mark your local Dropbox folders as online-only? 

Enabling Smart sync makes new files online-only, however, for existing files, to avoid any issues, the local files aren't moved online-only until you request them to.

Keep me updated with any progress!
