Get folder link from folder download link

Get folder link from folder download link

I have a few download links for Dropbox folders that I no longer have access to. 

I can obtain the download links by doing ctrl+j on chrome, but clicking them gives an error 400.

I was wondering if there was a way to somehow get the folder link using the folder download link.

Here is an example of what the download link from ctrl+j looks like

Hey @throwawaydragon55, thanks for using Dropbox and welcome aboard!

Can you please clarify what exactly you're trying to accomplish?

If you're referring to shared links, can you confirm that you're using these steps?

Thanks!

As I said in the post, I have the download link I used to download a folder, but I don't have the actual folder link. I would like to know if you can somehow get the folder link using the download link.

Hi @throwawaydragon55 

 

No, I'm afraid you cannot get the folder directory link from download links
