Monitor shared files for free or Business Account

Monitor shared files for free or Business Account

Explorer | Level 4

Hi,
I have an Application which "monitors" the user's dropbox account and does the necessary actions based on what the user does (adding, updating, deleting etc)
We are currently using the Java SDK and long polling to check the changes to his account.
We're getting all the changes except sharing.
When a folder is shared, we get the event only after the user "Adds to Dropbox"
But there's no such functionality for files.
Using the sharing/list_received_files API is not advisable since the user can have thousands of shared files.

Are we missing something in our logic since we need this for Free as well as Paid Dropbox Accounts.
