Selective Sync is a feature offered by Dropbox that enables the user to select only the folders he wants to sync on his computer. Many application don't offer this option and instead download all the contents stored on the cloud storage. This could fill the empty space on a hard driver very fast.

The Dropbox team created a page where you can see exactly how the feature is used: https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/175
