Hey there @PGSswen, welcome to our Community and thanks for using Dropbox!

If you don't like to keep your files on your hard drive you can:

1. Use our desktop application and utilize our selective sync feature to save hard drive space or

2. Use only our website to upload and access your Dropbox files at https://www.dropbox.

Let me know how it goes!
