Hi there @The Ironmonger; welcome aboard!

 

Have you tried downloading the file from there and then copying or moving it to the desired location?

 

Keep me posted!

But if i copy it to the desired folder, it will definitely not be shared with the person who sent it to me in the first place right ?

 

I have a shared excel sheet, in which my email has been added as a moderator. it shows in my shared files, but not in the main dropbox folder, nor is there an option to add it ??

 

Why is something so easy so difficult ??
