Dropbox taking up space on Mac

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

how to configure Dropbox on Mac to sync folders (all files, photos and vidoes) as virtual folders? I don't want everything physically download onto my mac. I want to access it only when i need it. Dropbox is physically downloading all files as part of synchronization and taking up all space in Mac. It's annoying?

 

Is this feature available on Mac?

 

Please help.
