I have my own folder on drop box which is not shared with anyone else. Can my Dropbox administrator access my personnel folder on drop box?

Can i permanently delete my personnel folder on Dropbox?

Hi @demo007x, thanks for joining the Community!

If you're part of a Dropbox Business team, depending on the plan, the team admin might be able to login as you and view your files in your account, which is part of the team.

If you need any more details, feel free to message back!

Yes, I am part of dropbox business team. But i had made my own folder inside without access to anyone else.

 

Now I am trying to delete this but not able to do so, i am worried my admin can access my personnel files.

 

Anyway to delete them permanently?

 

Whether my admin get notified if i delete personnel folder as well.

You can't delete the personal folder itself, as it's part of the system. 

However, you can try to delete the files from within the folder, and then permanently delete them from the site. 

Bear in mind that it's possible the team admin has the ability to disable permanent deletion, so if you're not seeing that option, then this is why.
