Hi @Sherlocco; welcome to the Community!

 

To directly get to the chase, no, it's not possible to find the email address of the account that generated a shared link, through the shared link itself that is. 

 

I'm not sure if this will suffice, but you can always ask whoever shared it with you in case they have more info on who was the original creator of the shared link in question. 

 

I hope this information helps and please let me know if you have any more questions.
