Broken Link to Folder

Broken Link to Folder

DDS Flagday
New member | Level 2

I received an invitation from opposing counsel  to view files in Dropbox.  The link no longer works.  I get a message that it is broken, although I am simply clicking on the link in the invitation email.  Is there a deadline for access the file that may have passed? I received the invitation email on October 28, 2020.  I assumed the files would be accessible indefinitely.  What should  I do?  What could have happened?

Hey there @DDS Flagday; welcome to the Community and happy Friday!

It's true that they might have had put an expiration date on the shared link itself; have you reached out to them directly to ask?

Otherwise, they might have deleted the file this link points to from their account. In that case, they'd need to restore the file and/or share a new link with you.

Keep me posted!
