How to get ownership back of a shared folder?

How to get ownership back of a shared folder?

I have managed to inadvertently make someone the owner of my shared folder. Is there a simple way to get this reverted so I am the owner again?

Hi,

 

I hope the one way is the person whom you've made the owner should make you the owner again or transfer his ownership to you.

 

Thanks.

Thanks John. I have tried that but he didnt seem to have that option. Does he need to sign up to have a dropbox account or does the fact I was able to share my folder with him mean that he already has a dropbox account?

Hey there, @Ktreadw, I hope you're doing well!

If you shared your folder with him, then he must have a Dropbox account on his end.

If anything else comes up, you know where to find us.
