Method 1:
1) Go to  system tray at the bottom menu of Windows 7, click dropbox  icon,   a menu popup, click gear icon at top right,  click preferences, the click advanced,  click selective sync and choose the folder you want to show in Windows. The unchecked folder will be deleted from your local computer.
