How can I disable Smart Sync?

Trying to disable SmnartSync, turned it off and set "Files Added on Web Default" to local, still smart syncing.  I need it to stop

Hi @attybeck, thanks for messaging the Community!

 

The setting you’re seeing in the Dropbox desktop application is for any new files added to your account online.

 

If you already have files marked as online-only on your machine, you’ll have to manually set them to local by right clicking on the Dropbox folder, Smart Sync, and then Local.

 

Let me know how it goes!
