A couple of usability questions that don't appear to have been addressed in the video:

- on a Mac, if I press the spacebar to show the quick preview and start navigating down the list, will this trigger downloading of all the files?

- how are older files cached? Do we simply unselect devices to remove them locally? At least with Selective Sync, I can remove files eating up my hard drive (very important on devices with 128GB SSDs/HDs or less). It's much clearer in terms of what's on disk and how to manage it with Selective Sync. With Project Infinite, I'm wondering how one would remove files locally without fully deleting the file across the Dropbox folder for every other team member.

You don't delete files to save space locally. They automatically keep it cached for you, and delete from cache when it's over some limit.
