How do you upload folders and files from a Dropbox folder that sits as a system folder on my laptop on to Dropbox app?

If you have the Dropbox app running, anything you put in the Dropbox folder will automatically sync to your account online.

This is not happening. They don't seem to be syncing. Is there a setting I need to check?

It's automatic. Is Dropbox running? If so, the Dropbox icon should be visible in your system tray (Windows) or menu bar (Mac). If you hover your cursor over the icon, it will tell you its status.
