Unlinking specific folders in Teams on my desktop

Unlinking specific folders in Teams on my desktop

New member | Level 2

Hello,

 

I am running out of diskspace on my mac. The main culprit is the large number of files that has accumulated in our company Team dropbox space which I am syncing to my desktop. 

 

I have figured out how to temporarily remove folders shared with me that are *not* part of the team space (clicking on 'Remove from Dropbox' under 'Sharing') but this does not seem to work on the teamspace? When I click on the corresponding icon on the team space I do not get the option 'Remove from Dropbox'. Ideally I would only want to remove a subfolder in the team space but I can not even see those under the 'Sharing' section.

 

Anyone who can help me out?

 

Cheers,

Ole

Ah, I found it out. I was being stupid. At least on my Mac unsharing is easy using the Desktop application - going under Settings - Preferences - Account - Selective Sync it is possible to very selective check the folders you want on your desktop. I suppose the questions still stand on how to do this with the web interface - but I am happy (-:

Pleased you figured it out, however, you cant do it on the web interface. It has to be done locally.
