Is it possible to prevent deletions when working with a shared folder in a collaborative project?

Hi All,

I am working on a collaborative project sharing files via dropbox. I am trying to understand if there is back-up function that prevents other authors from accidently deleting files. 

Many thanks,

Hey @cm4004, you can achieve what you have in mind if you grant other participants View-only access either via a shared link or a shared folder. On the other hand, if you’d like to grant your co-workers “Edit” rights, then they’d be able to add & delete content & you can switch between the Edit/View permissions through the "Share" option ➡️ then clicking on the options next to their name.
 
I hope that this clarifies matters for you however I’m always here if you have any follow-up questions; just let me know in your next message. Thanks & happy Friday!
