Deletion of files from Dropbox shared folders

Deletion of files from Dropbox shared folders

New member | Level 2

My dropbox account membership changed from professional to basic, so, the excess files started to delete from my dropbox. Now, my question is that if a file is deleted from my dropbox, then does it get deleted from the dropbox folders of the members with whom it is shared?

I have the same question.

Hey peeps, thanks for posting!

 

When deleting files from a shared folder, the changes will reflect for all members of the shared folder. So, deleting files from the folder will delete the files for all.

 

I just wanted to clarify with you too @PG20, even if your account is over the space limit, Dropbox wouldn't remove files from your account.

 

Are you referring to deleting the files yourself to free up space, or are the files not being deleted by you?

 

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions!
