Hi @Irene5, thanks for reaching out to us. 

 

With sync, one of our core features, you to have an up-to-date version of your account on all connected devices, including any edits, additions, and deletions that occurred to your files. 

 

If you don't want to have some folders locally available on a computer, you can selectively sync them. This feature allows you to save space on your hard drive by removing them from your computer but keeping them in your account. 

 

Give me another nudge if you have any other questions, cheers!
