Re: Do I lose my earned space through referrals if I step out of that folder?

Do I lose my earned space through referrals if I step out of that folder?

Explorer | Level 3

Hi there!

Many moons ago, I set up a shared folder with a project team. Two members of the team were referred to me, and I received extra space for it. However, the project is long done and the team doesn't exist anymore. If I leave the shared folder, will I also lose my extra space? Or is the extra space credited when they installed Dropbox and now I am good?

On a related note: what happens if the referred person deinstalls Dropbox?

Hi @Julian V.,

The short answer is: NO.

Ones earned the space is owned by the account till the moment corresponding account gets destroyed, if any. Only way earnings could change (not lost) is when you change you subscription (same action on different subscription would be counted in different manner). That's it.

Hope this helps.
