Access to a shared folder on Business account without taking up personal storage

Access to a shared folder on Business account without taking up personal storage

New member | Level 2

If I'm consulting for a company with a business account how do they add me to their team so it does not take up my personal space? I work and save files in a folder they shared with me but it is currently in my personal storage limit. How do they add me to their account?

They need to invite you to join their Business team. Note that if you accept the invitation using your current account, your account will be merged into the Business account, and it will no longer be yours. It will belong to the company. If, when your time with the company is over, they remove you from the team, your account is deleted. Instead, they need to convert your account back to an individual account.

 

For those reasons, it's suggested that you create a new Basic account using a different email address, and use that account to join the team. You'll keep your account separate (and your own), and you can connect the accounts so you can sync both of them.

Thanks Rich. I'll see if I can set it up that way. Appreciate it.
