Can't upload to shared folder

Can't upload to shared folder

New member | Level 2

Hey everyone,

 

A friend of mine is sharing his 2TB folder.
I have full acces to it and I'm able to see all files.

But since all got uploaded I'm not able to upload anything myself as my dropbox says that my storage is full.

Doesn't seem logic to me as I'm not using mine folder, but his shared folder?

Can anyone give me some more info on this? 

Thanks everyone!

Hi @EmithNimh, thanks for joining the Community!

 

As you've discovered, shared folders do take up quota on all active members' accounts, so you'd need enough quota to be able to add the shared folder to your account and for it to sync.

 

You can ask them to share a link to the folder so that you can view and download files, and file requests can allow you to upload to their account.

 

If you need any more details, feel free to message back!
