Delete and upload in a shared folder. Who can do it?

Delete and upload in a shared folder. Who can do it?

Hi everyone,

 

Since a few days I have created a folder that I share with someone, just to exchange videos and documents. 

I uploaded a few videos and told him to delete them when downloaded.

Now he messaged me he is unable to delete them.

 

What am I doing wrong?

Can he upload files to my Drobox in our shared folder?

 

Thanks in advance for your reply

 

Hans

Hi @hansnaber, how are you today?

 

You shared the folder using these steps, right? 

 

If yes, then the member might not have editing permissions to the folder you created. Here is how to check on that, and change that if you want them to be able to edit the content in it. 

 

Keep me posted on any updates.
