Deleting a file or a picture in a shared folder owned by me.

If I delete a picture inside a folder that is shared by me or owned by me, will the members or shared members will know this? or will get notify? Will they know if I add pictures or delete pictures inside a shared folder?

Of course they will @Anoni - unless you or they have removed their access from the shared folder that is.  

Let me know if you have any more queries; I'll be happy to follow up!

Hey there @Anoni - how are you today?

As they have edit rights to the folder, all members of the shared folder in question will see the deletion event in their Events page at https://www.dropbox.com/events which gives you an overview of all activity in your account including files events (adds/edits/deletes), as well as adding or removing shared folders.

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any more questions!

What if they dont click the 'events'? Is there any other way they will get notification, like red star in my folder, that I delete and add new photos in a shared folder.

No, they won't @Anoni. If you'd like to ping them about the new content in your shared folder though, you can comment on the newly added files and even @mention them to give them a nudge.

Let me know how it goes!

But what if they open the shared folder again, will they see the new added photos? Thank you for answering my questions.
