I am working on a CLI app that will use a team admin token to export the entire data structure (including team folders, shared folders and members' personal folders) on a given dropbox.com account.
I am using Python SDK and getting duplicated entries. That is, when I list team folders, I get the list of all team folders, then I list each member's root folders and I get their personal folders along with shared folders and team folders that were listed previously when I first listed the team folders.
How would I get a unique listing of files/folders? I've read about user's root and team space but I wouldn't know whether team is sharing a team space.
To de-duplicate these entries, you should use the namespace ID for each shared/team folder. I.e., the "shared folder ID" or "team folder ID". These IDs will be consistent across user accounts, even if the path of the folder is not.
