Storage full on other's dropboxes

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hello,

 

I'm a student and work for several different researchers. I collect data and upload it to their paid dropboxes. However I've hit my 2gb cap (my last upload was 20gb..). Is their a way for me to upload data to their folders, without using the storage on my dropbox account, but still be able to manipulate the files? I can't afford to upgrade.

No, there isn't. They could send you a File Request which would allow you to upload files to their account without impacting your storage, but you wouldn't be able to access the files after uploading.

 

The only way to be able to edit files in a shared folder is if you're a member of the folder, and a shared folder will take up space in your account.
