Create access in a subfolder

Hello everyone,
I own of a folder with two members, I would to create a new subfolder there only for me (The other member in the main folder can not see him). That's a possibility? 

Thanks,
Koren

Hi @KorenAvni, welcome to the Dropbox Community!

If this is a subfolder inside a shared folder, currently, all members will be able to see and access it. 

Let me know if you have any follow up questions!

Have any way to change the subfolder to private only for me?

Hey again @KorenAvni,

Since content in a shared folder takes the sharing properties of its parent folder, there's no option to make a subfolder private. 

Currently, the only way this can be done is if you're on a Business plan and you restrict members' access to a subfolder inside a team folder. 

You can find more info about this here

Hope this helps!
