I want the drop box cloud to have or to keep files and folders that I want to earase from my computer- so all archived files will be there and to evacuate some memory from my computer.

is it possible? and how do I do it?

Hey @Yiphat, welcome to the Dropbox Community - I'd be more than happy to help!

If you have the desktop app installed and the folders you want to delete are in the Dropbox folder, when you delete them, they'll be removed from your account. 

This means that they'll be deleted from your computer, the website, and any other connected device you have the desktop and mobile apps installed. 

If you want to remove a folder from your computer but you don't want to delete it from your account, you can selectively sync it. 

I hope this helps!
