Incorrectly shared some items

New member | Level 2

Hi !!! Way back in 2018 I sent a friend a group of pictures and video clips somehow incorrectly . Now he said that my stuff is in his DB and it looks like if he deletes it for more room it will delete my pictures on my end as well. What can I do? Thanks James

Hi @JamesHenrySebastianMeyer, thanks for messaging the Community!

 

It sounds like you shared a folder with your friend, which is why when they delete a photo, it deletes from your account.

 

They can instead temporarily remove access to the shared folder, which will free up space, and not affect the files on your account.

 

Hope this helps!
