Selective sync allows you to free up space by choosing which folders uploaded to Cubbit you want to keep synchronized on your computer and which to keep only in the Swarm. Your files will always be available online.
Step 1: Open the Cubbit application, under Profile and then Cubbit Folder, you will find the Select folders button.
Step 2: After opening the Selective Sync management window, you will have the option to select or de-select whichever folders are present in your Cubbit Folder. In the example below, the folders Documents, The Beehive and the sub-folder Details have all been de-selected. Click confirm and you are done!
These files will be removed from the local machine but still available on the web. Remember, if you de-select a folder and later want to re-select it, you will need to download all of its contents again - so be aware of this if it is a large folder.
