Live Drive - How to switch off "Make Files Available Locally"

I'm using Live Drive backup software and I need to switch off the “Make Files Available Locally” within Live Drive, I have been told I need to select the Online Files tab within the Live Drive Control Panel.  However the Online Files tab isn’t there…

Any ideas?

By default, Livedrive stores all your files locally and online. To make a file/folder online only, right click on the file or folder and select 'Do not keep a copy on my computer' from the Livedrive menu.

thanks for coming back to me.
I have checked this and I don't have an option once right clicking on the folder to "Do not keep a copy on my computer".  The only option I get is "Backup with Live backup".

Any more ideas?

can you attach 'Livedrive Control panel' image, you must have 'Online files' tab

When I see the image, maybe I can help

What account do you have, Backup, or Backup and Briefcase?

The account is only backup.

Livedrive desktop software is the same for both Backup and Briefcase users, but just shows different features depending on the type of account you have. If you upgrade your account from a Backup account to a Backup and Briefcase account then the software will automatically display all of the Briefcase features the next time it starts.

I have upgraded to the Briefcase version of Live Drive, have been able to disable the local copy.
Thanks.
