Hi there! Thanks so much for your reply! Im slowly working it out but that info really helped. I have given up trying to delete things via the PC and not just remove them via mobile device and I dont get the issue. Not a perfect work around but it will do Thanks again!

Hi everyone. I seem to be encountering a problem with the Selective Sync function. In all honesty I didnt even know it existed until today and I certainly didnt enable it. I have never had a problem with deleting files from my Dropbox before, then today I get the Selective Sync message about deleting files and folders from all accounts and devices. So, very confused, I do what it says and open up the Selective Sync section in the settings only to be greeted with the message that the unselected folders will be removed from my dropbox completely! Not what i need at all. Im not trying to delete a folder, Im trying to delete a standalone file! To start with, I was only looking to remove selected files that aren't in folders and to follow up I really dont want to start deleting things from my Dropbox by accident. I really dont understand where this came from, as I said, up till now I have happily deleted and added things whenever I feel like it, I did not turn on any file saving options. Im trying to free up space not double my storage load! Please if anyone can help me I would be eternally grateful. All I want is for the files I put in Dropbox to be in Dropbox and when I want to delete something for it to delete. Many thanks everyone.
