Selective sync isn't removing other files

New member | Level 2

We share a dropbox and did not need most of the files on it. We selectively synced the folder we needed but the other folders were not removed. I have tried to unlink the account and restart the selective sync but all the other folders still show up in the dropbox.

How do you mean? Is this sub folders of one you selectivly sync'd?
