I cant sync files and folders to make them local on my hard drive. Mac with M1 chip

In the past I have been able to make a DB folder, or single file, available on my local drive. It's really an issue for me that I can't do that any longer. Will you be bringing that back? I am a Mac on M1 chip user.

It used to be that when I stored files/photos on Dropbox, I could right click on the file so sync it so that it was available on my local drive too. Same thing with complete folders of files/photos. It is a nice way to only keep the only those files that I want on my local drive. 

 

It seems to be that some months ago I had a popup or saw something that indicated that this feature is not working with computers using either the latest version of Mac...or due to the Mac's new M1 chip.
