Can you access files downloaded from expired Dropbox Transfers?

Explorer | Level 4

Can a viewer of a transferred file or folder still have access to that transferred file or folder if they download the transferred file to their own device before the expiration date? What happens after the expiration date?

Hi @acejagman1, thanks for posting!

While the transfer would have expired, provided the user downloaded the files first, they can access the files already on their machine.

I hope this helps to clarify matters!
