I want to share only one folder in Dropbox, not all folders.

I have multiple folders in my Dropbox. I want to share only one folder with a group of people. I created the link and putting it into an email to the group however can you confirm that the group of people will ONLY be able to see that one folder, not all my other Dropbox folders. 

Thanks!

Hi @kate753

Thanks for sharing your concern. Happy to talk about shared links! 

A shared link is a unique path, a door let's say, that can help the receiver access the folder/file you created the link for. Only that item and nothing else in your Dropbox. 

You can always navigate to your "Files" page "Sharing" tab online and "Links" to see the links you have created and even deleted them if you wish. Direct link.

Test. 

You can check what others see, if you click the link yourself. Make sure to open it in an incognito/private browsing window of your browser.  If you are loged in your normal browser mode the link will show a lot more options that what the receivers see. That's why incognito is a must, for this test.
