I can't download a dropbox folder [download disbaled]

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

 Hi so the first time ever I encountered a folder that I can't download? The download button is greyed out for some reason saying "downloads disabed".

 

I've tried every single browser, mobile phone, anything and still getting the same message. :/

 

What do I do?

 

I can see all the images and everything

Hi @Sasuke92, thanks for messaging the Community!

 

It sounds like you're viewing a shared link to a folder with download restrictions.

 

This is a security measure on Dropbox Professional and Business plans to prevent users from downloading the individual files and folders inside the shared link.

 

Hope this helps to clarify matters!
