Using Selective Sync to free up space

Community Manager

Today on Twitter we'll be talking about Selective Sync.

If you have a folder in your Dropbox account that you rarely use - such as back ups of important documents, photos from old holidays, or work files that you don't need on your home PC - you can use Selective Sync to free up that space on your hard drive.

You can view your Selective Sync settings in the 'preferences' of your Dropbox desktop app. For a more detailed guide, check out our help center article here.

Do you use Selective Sync at home or at work? Do you find it works well for your needs, or do you have any suggestions on how we could improve it? We'd love to hear your thoughts!
