Selective Sync - Ignore new Folder Events

Selective Sync - Ignore new Folder Events

There are times when you have limited space on your local drive and have selective sync enabled. 

It would be good to also have a checkbox that allows you to ignore the creation of new folders on your local machine that were created by other users.

Hi @Alexander16; thanks for using Dropbox and sharing your thoughts on this!

 

This idea is going to need a bit more support before we can share it with our team so I've updated the status to encourage more users to back you up!

 

Have a lovely day ahead and stay safe!

I'd love this setting. I have the same problem - a second device with limited storage. It'd be great to be able to set the Selective Sync setting to something like "Uncheck by default" so new folders don't automatically add to every device.
