I do not like the selective sync because I cannot see files without logging into Dropbox.com but I do not want them residing on the HD.  Before trying selective sync, I set many to online only but they were never removed from the HD.  There has to be an easy way to fix this.

Hi @cpt_tom, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

 

When you marked files as online-only, did you allow it time to let the space get freed up on your device?

 

Have you tried rebooting your machine to see if this helps?

 

This will help me to assist further!
