Changing billing country - what happens to shared folders?

Changing billing country - what happens to shared folders?

dakonium
Explorer | Level 4

I moved from Canada to the US and plan to change my billing country/currency. I read that I need to first cancel my current subscription and then subscribe in the new country. From what I read, this should not affect my dropbox folders and files.

I am curious if any sharing privileges will be affected by the switch. Many of my folders are shared with other people, and I don't want them to lose access. Could you please confirm.

Hi @dakonium; thanks for posting on our Community!

To get to the chase, your sharing privileges and files/folders won't be affected at all when your account gets downgraded. Only syncing of new files would stop (as you'd be over-quota) until you upgraded again using your new billing information. 

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any more questions.

Good luck on your new venture by the way!
