Re: I was sent an invitation to be the editor of a folder. Does this affect my space?

I was sent an invitation to be the editor of a folder. Does this affect my space?

Good day.
I was sent an invitation to be the editor of a specific folder.
But when I click on the link, I get information that I do not have a place in the account. But the folder is not mine and I do not own it and it is uploaded to another account. What am I doing wrong, either the owner of this folder and how to solve this problem?

Hi @Malik2008ts

Thanks for posting your question to our Community. 

I understand you are trying to add the folder to your account and you get a message that this folder doesn't fit in your account. You are not doing anything wrong. 

The folder might not be yours cause you did not create it, but to add it to your account you need to have enough space to save it. Since you don't, to solve this you will need to ask of the user to send you a shared link to the folder ( only view rights) and a file request for you to upload. 

These sharing features will not add the folder to your account but will give you access to see it and upload to it.
