 Hi @kal77 

As the error says the parent folder has too many shared folders within it. So, you'll need to unshare some to be able to share that folder OR move it out of the parent folder and share it independently.

Thanks, It would have been great if we could of shared unlimited folders under a folder.

 

But it is what it is.

@kal77 until a few weeks ago you couldnt actually share anything within a share so this is a huge improvement already!
