Clarification needed re: sharing of folders and sub-folders please?

Hi. I am using Dropbox for the purpose of showing photos of an entire large model car collection to prospective buyers.  I have one main folder, within which, are 20 or so individual sub folders.  The sub-folders are needed to organize/categorize the collection by model brand.  So for example, there's Main Folder>SubFolder A, SubFolder B, and so forth.  

The whole idea was/is, that if I send a SINGLE LINK to a prospective auction house or buyer, the person receiving that link would in turn be able to open and browse ALL of the folders within the MAIN folder.  I did not want to have to have a separate link for each SUB-folder.  

 

Can someone access/view ALL folders if I send a SINGLE link?  That is what I need.  If not, can anyone recommend a better way or platform.?  Thanks!

 

Mike

Hey @mikes425, thanks for posting to our Community!

 

A Dropbox shared link gives access to the contents of the file/folder it's created for.

 

So, basically, if you share a link to the parent folder, your recipients will be able to access all the subfolders as well.

 

I hope this helps, but let me know if you have any questions.
