Why are all of my dropbox files still showing up in my dropbox folder on my computer, even though I deselected them in "selective sync"?

Hey there (@profclr), you’re highly likely facing a syncing issue however rest assured that I’m here to help you out on that in any way I can! 
Would you mind having a quick look on your overlay icons Arrows Counter Clock/White check mark? From there we recommend ensuring that you’re running the latest Stable version of the Dropbox application (64.4.141), you’ve made all OS updates & the app displays an Up-To-Date message on your menu bar/ system tray
If you’ve done any initial troubleshooting on your end, please do keep me updated of the outcome, so as to further advise accordingly. Any detail you could include on this discussion would be very helpful & thanks in advance for taking the time to clarify matters for me!
