Deleting shared files but remains on shared account

Deleting shared files but remains on shared account

Hi y'all,

 

Can't find the solution so here it goes..

 

Someone shared his folder with me. He's got 2TB, i've got 2GB. Now i can't upload to his folder, because mine is full of space containing his shared files.

 

How can i fix this? Can i delete the shared files on my account, but keeping the original files intact?

You can remove the shared folder from your account. You'll lose access to the share, but your own file will remain.
