How to remove myself from shared folder?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi there! My Dropbox is full, and I'm trying to remove myself from a folder that's been shared with me. I've followed all the steps documented to remove the folder, but I can't find the option to remove access for myself.

When I click "Share," it gives me this message:

How can I get myself out of this folder?

Hi @eljarhead2017, thanks for reaching out to us. 

From your screenshot, I can see that you're trying to remove yourself from a subfolder of a shared folder. 

If you don't want to be a member of the shared folder and it's contents, you'll have to find which folder in the hierarchy above is shared first before removing your access

Let me know if you have any other questions!
