Hi!

I share a folder with a group of people and they upload files. The space that those files are ocupating, will be from my storage space or from their storage space?

Thank you!

Hi @irecora!

Welcome to Dropbox Community. 

The folders are added to both your accounts, so all the files in the folders take up space from both accounts! 

Note  : If you want to share something, without affecting the receivers storage, share a Dropbox link instead. 

Feel free to ask more questions. I would be happy to answer them!
