Permanently deleting files from shared folder

Permanently deleting files from shared folder

In my Dropbox I have a lot of files that were shared in a folder and have been deleted to my "delete files", so no files are in my shared folder.

The question is how do I delete them?

I select some and push permanently delete, it asks for my password, after putting it in, pushing OK then NOTHING.

So how do you get rid of them?

Hi there @ASNBARRY - sorry to hear you're having issues with this.

 

If you're not the owner of the shared folder and the files in question you won't be able to permanently delete them from your end, Barry, but you should be able to remove your access from the shared folder as outlined here, if needed.

 

I hope this helps!
