I'm not seeing any options for Smart Sync on my machine

Level 2

I am trying to save space on my macbook and there is no smart sync option on my drop box when I right click.

Re: No Smart Sync

Hi there, Smart Sync is only available on Dropbox Professional and Business plans, so if you’re not on one of these plans, then you won’t have that option.
However, there is selective sync, which is available for all plans, and that prevents entire folders from syncing to your machine, and deletes the local copy, thus freeing up space for you.
Hope this info helps!
