How do I download all folders again?

New member | Level 2

I deleted some folders locally due to space issues (a lot of pictures). 

I deactivated the folders in the sync. settings after they were uploaded and afterwards I simply deleted the local folders.

The pictures are all in dropbox as they should be.

But how do I get them back on my local drive now that I have space again?

I suppose, you use 'Selective Sync'. After such a action all 'deactivated' local folder should be automatically removed. Here bring up reasonable question: What you have 'deactivated' really and what you have 'deleted'?

Anyway, You say that

In such a case just open the 'Selective Sync' dialog again and select appropriate folder(s) (very similarly as you have 'deactivated' them, just opposite action), so they to be in sync locally again. winking face

Hope this helps.
