How do I download a large folder someone shared with me?

How do I download a large folder someone shared with me?

Someone shared a folder with me that's about 10 GB of documents. When I open the link to the folder, it then redirects me to my Dropbox home and says the folder is too big to add to my account. I don't want to add it. I just want to view the files online and download the folder to my desktop.

Hi @itkowitzpllc,

In such a case, ask the folder sharer to send you shared link, not to share the folder to your account. 😉

Hope this helps.
