Hi @AnnaVandeCloot, @aalexander, thanks for posting today!

 

As shared folders take up quota on all active members' accounts, it wouldn't be possible to add a folder that would make you account go overquota.

 

However, you can ask the owner of the folder to share a link to the folder so you can view and download files from there.

 

Hope this helps!
