Hey @antoniovandre, like Mark mentioned, shared links provide view and download access tot he content.

 

If it's a 'can-view' link, you won't be able to upload files to the folder.

 

The owner of the folder, however, can either invite you to the folder itself, or send you a file request, so you can upload your file, which won't take up space in your own Dropbox.

Thats the corrected expected behaviour @antoniovandre 

 

Dropbox shared links are read only one way downloads. If you want to have more than that you need to be sent an edit one
