Removing DB from laptop

Removing DB from laptop

Hi, newbie question: I use dropbox mainly on my desktop computer but it stores everything on my laptop too and has used up most of the storage on the laptop therefore. I don't need DB on my laptop but if out and about and need to access shots then I would need to be able to access the DB site to download shots. How can I remove DB from laptop but still access it from laptop should I need to?

 

thank you

Hey @newbie50, I'd be happy to answer this for you.

What if I told you that you can achieve to have your content synced to your hard drive, however it would take up zero space? 

You can achieve this with Smart Sync.

However, you'd need to be using any paid plan in order for you to have this feature. You can check more on your account's subscription here.

Give me a nudge if you have any other questions.

Hey @newbie50, thanks for replying back!

Sure you can.

You can continue using Dropbox from your desktop, and remove the Dropbox app from your laptop by using these steps.

After this, you can access your files through the Website. 

Give me a nudge if you have any other questions!
