Hello,

I want to know if api endpoint "/copy_reference/save" creates a new file/folder from the reference passed to it...i mean if  i delete the referenced file/folder does the copy get deleted too?

Hi Dennis, the /2/files/copy_reference/save endpoint works like the /2/files/copy endpoint, in that the resulting copy isn't connected to the original file. Deleting the original file that the copy reference was based on won't affect the copy.
