This help page https://www.dropbox.com/help/files-folders/leave-shared-folder suggests to remove yourself from having acess to a file/folder in order to unshare it and remove it from your dropbox but leave it for everyone else. However, when I try this, there is no dropdown menu next to my name. There is an arrow for all other names but not for mine (I am not the creator of the folder). If I try to do it via the desktop app, I receive an error message saying that I don't have permission to remove myself.
Help would be highly appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.
thank you for your suggestion!
Unfortunately, I am not the owner of the file/folder so I can not transfer ownership.
I have attached a screenshot for clarification of my problem.
Yes, I can remove my access from the whole folder via the sharing tab, thank you for your suggestion.
I assume it is not possible to remove my access from subfolders or single files?
