Transferring Folder owneship

New member | Level 2


I have sold part of my business to another party. I need to transfer ownership of some folders in my dropbox to the dropbox of the new owner.

The folders are shared by multiple users. Is there a way to transfer the ownership of the folders to the new owners dropbox without affecting any of the sharing.

Hey @Balas, this resource should be helpful regarding the task at hand, however a quick-fire answer should be that making someone else the Owner of a shared folder shouldn’t affect all other members in the share. 
Please have a look at my suggestions at your earliest convenience & let me know how you get on with my advice or if I’ve misunderstood your question in any way on our discussion here. Thanks Bala
