I know there have been some posts about this before, but I can't find the solution to my issue there. A folder has been shared with me, which was automatically added to my Dropbox root folder. Since it is for a customer's project, I'd like to move it to DropboxRoot/Customers/CustomerName/. However, when I try to do so, I get the error "Can't move [FOLDERNAME] to [LOCATION]. To move this folder, you need access to edit the folder it is in." (with of course the actual folder name and location instead of the bracketed expressions). I have no idea how to solve this, I can remember having moved shared folders to another location before. To be clear, my "Customers" folder is not a shared folder, so I'm not trying to nest shared folders. I also noticed that I am allowed to copy it to the desired location, but I don't know what will then happen with sharing/syncing, and whether I can then remove it from the root.
Thank you for the quick reply, Mark. I'm on a Mac, and the location would go from [DROPBOX ROOT] / [SHARED FOLDER NAME] to [DROPBOX ROOT] / [CUSTOMERS] / [CUSTOMER NAME] / ]PROJECT NAME‘ / [SHARED FOLDER NAME]. Should not be too bad, right?

If you're on a modern Mac (using APFS as the file system), the maximum length limit of a file's name is 255 characters. This includes every character in the file's full path from the root of the drive, not just the root of your Dropbox folder.
