Added shared folder to dropbox and now it's the parent folder

Explorer | Level 4

I was given access to a folder and when I clicked "add to my dropbox", it's now become the parent folder. How do I change it to just be a regular folder?

Hi @Sal4, thanks for posting today!

From your description, you were added to a shared folder, which would automatically be added to the root folder. You can move the folder to a subfolder of a private folder if you wish.

If instead this is a team folder, with a building icon on it, you just joined a Dropbox Business team, and you can't move it to a subfolder, since team folders must remain on the root folder.

Let me know what you see so I can help further!
