Moving a private (not shared) folder; why does DB keep telling me I can't move a shared folder?

Moving a private (not shared) folder; why does DB keep telling me I can't move a shared folder?

New member | Level 2

Hi Everyone,

 

I want to move a private folder to another private folder, but each time I try, through the website or on my computer, Dropbox keeps telling me that I can't move a shared folder. The folder was shared once, but I removed the other users. Has anyone else had this and can you help me fix it?

Thank you

Hi there @Jeremy88; welcome to our Community!
 

Could you send me a screenshot of the exact error you get in order to advise further? 

 

Did you unshare the folder using these steps by the way?

 

Let me know what you find!
