Share a subfolder to non-dropbox users with write access

Share a subfolder to non-dropbox users with write access

Hello,

 

I have a shared folder with other Dropbox users.  We would like to create a sub-folder in the Shared folder and have other non-Dropbox users be able to EDIT the files in that sub-folder.  Kind of like having a sub-folder as the Public folder, I think.

Is this possible?

Thank you.

No. You can share a link to the subfolder for view/download access, but they won't be able to edit the files in the folder. Additionally, there's no option that allows non-Dropbox users edit access, even in a (non-sub) shared folder. Edit access to a shared file or folder requires a Dropbox account.
