Allow new files/folders that are uploaded to be automatically set to online-only after upload completes, to save hard drive space. This is especially helpful when uploading large amounts of data, as your hard drive has to have massive amounts of space for this to be done with Dropbox's current configuration.

As someone who utilizes dropbox as a cloud archival system, this would be greatly helpful. I have to have enough space locally to archive something, which doesn't work if I'm trying to make a backup of my boot disk which takes up more than 50% of my local drive.
