Revoke Automatic Dropbox Access (Desktop, Downloads, Documents)?

Revoke Automatic Dropbox Access (Desktop, Downloads, Documents)?

Explorer | Level 3

Hey, Dropbox Users,
When installing DB, I unwittingly allowed all three areas to be automatically accessed and synchronized by DB. This led to an excessive capacity requirement. I later realized that I don't want everything to be saved and updated anyway.

Can someone tell me how to cancel this function for 2 of the 3 areas (without messing up the functioning of DB)?

Many thanks!
