« Deselected folder to stop from synch not working. »
I deselected a folder that I don’t want to be synchronized anymore, then clicked “mettre a jour” (update), but this does not seem to have had any effect and I am still getting messages 173 times a minute that invite me to buy storage.
I don’t want to buy storage, I want to remove a folder from synch.
Thanks for your answer but it doesn’t really solve my problem. My problem is that I am unchecking the box of that folder and applying that change and when I come back it is still checked.
What I’m saying is, the selective synch feature doesn’t work.
I need to use selective synch to unsynch a large folder which is causing me to go over the limit of allowed space.

Well, that doesn’t make sense. Imagine I have one unique folder in my Dropbox (100% of used space is used by files from that folder). Then if I unsynch that folder that means 100% of used space is now unused space and I should have 2Gb or 2.5Gb or whatever you are offering in the free account plan.

That's not what Selective Sync is used for. Selective Sync doesn't stop folders from syncing to your Dropbox account. It removes the local copy of folder from your hard drive, leaving it in your Dropbox account online. It's a feature used to save local drive space by removing folders that you don't access often.
To save space in your account, you need to move files or folders out of your local Dropbox folder, or delete them if they're no longer needed.
