Continual privacy-type message when copying files to team folder from member folder

Continual privacy-type message when copying files to team folder from member folder

Dexterb
Explorer | Level 3

Recently (in the last month or so), whenever I transfer a number of files from my individual member folder to my team folder, a window pops up saying "Copied "Document" and 3 other items to "Team Folder" ... Everyone who can access Team Folder can now access a copy of all these items. If you didn't mean to copy these items there, delete them."

 

There must be a way to turn this notification off. I sometimes transfer hundreds of files at a time, and this message will pop up a dozen times or more during that operation. It makes the process incredibly time-consuming and aggravating.

Hi @Dexterb, thanks for posting on the Community!

Are you using a Mac or a Windows device when this occurs?

Is there an option to disable the prompt using a checkbox?

Do you get the error message on the Dropbox site when moving files across?

Keep me updated with any progress!

Thanks for getting back to me. 

 

I am using a Mac, and there is no prompt to disable the message from recurring.

 

I have not experienced the issue when moving files on dropbox.com, but that is not my preferred workflow.

 

I'd appreciate any input!

Generally, this prompt is there for security purposes to ensure users are aware of moving private files to a public team setting. 

Currently, there isn't a method to disable this message. If you wish, you can suggest this change for others to vote on, so the dev team can look into this in future!
