Deleting a shared sub folder

Deleting a shared sub folder

Oceanborn
New member | Level 2

Sorry if this has been asked before but if I deleted a large shared dropbox sub folder from my computer (I am not the owner BTW) will it get deleted from the computers of others using that same sub folder?

 

And assuming it only gets deleted from my computer, will that free up space on my Dropbox?

THat's a bummer.

 

OK, thanks anyway. I'll ask the owner to move the files or something...

Any solutions for this?

 

The shared sub folder I have is taking too much space on my computer and DB account. How to remove myself from it without deleting it for others?

You can remove yourself from the entire shared folder, but you cannot remove subfolders within the main share.
