Deleting shared Folders and Files

Deleting shared Folders and Files

Explorer | Level 3

Hi,

how can I delete shared folders and files in my dropbox, if the one who shared them has deleted them on his account?

These files occupy my account (videos and pix).

I appreciate any help!

Cheers, Chris

Hi @Chris Coburger, thanks for messaging the Community!

 

You can remove shared folders from your account either temporarily or permanently using the steps in this article.

 

In both cases, the files would no longer take up quota on your account.

 

 

 

Let me know how it goes!
