Cannot Access Shared Files

Cannot Access Shared Files

Scott T.15
New member | Level 2

I have nothing in my Dropbox account other than some PDFs and someone shared files with me from their account and Dropbox is forcing me to upgrade, which I refuse to do just to access some files. I do not want these shared files in my Dropbox and just need to download them.


What do I do?

If you dont need edit access on the files ask the person who is sending you them to send you a shared link instead 🙂
