Sorry for being dumb but I had all my files set to make available offline and they sucked up nearly all my storage on my laptop. I have changed them to online but they are still showing on my hard drive. How do I delete them from my hard drive but still keep them in Dropbox?

Hey @cdeanbroker, thanks for joining our Community.

 

When you switch your files to online-only, they'll still be visible in your Dropbox folder, they just won't take up any hard drive space.

 

If you want them completely removed, you'll need to use our selective sync feature.

 

Do the online-only files still appear to take up your space?

 

Let me know what you find.
