Hi @tajmatharu, thanks for posting on the Community!

If you delete a file or folder in the Dropbox folder, then it would also delete from the Dropbox site.

You can use selective sync instead to deselect entire folders from syncing to your computer by following these steps. They'll remain online, and they'll be deleted from the Dropbox folder.

Keep me updated with any progress!
