Moving a shared folder

Moving a shared folder

Helpful | Level 6

A client shared his folder with me, which I want to move as a subfolder to within a password-protected folder per my organizational structure.  This will not prevent him from accessing (uploading/downloading) his shared folder, right?

Thanks for replying quickly!  I have Drobbox Plus, not sharing with a team.  I've set up password-protected folders in which clients can download their returns, so they need both the link and password to access.  A few are Dropbox users anyway and simply share their folder with me and I put their tax return back to their folder.  However to keep all my folders organized, I 'move' their folder from my top level where it intially appears, to my subfolders hierarchy.  I know moving it doesn't matter, wanted to be sure moving it inside a protected folder has no effect in this situation either.

Hi there @Taxaway, thanks for posting your question here!

You should be able to move a shared folder that you're a member of to a personal/regular folder of yours, without affecting other members' access. 

However, could you clarify what you mean when you mention that you want to move it into a password-protected folder?

Are you by any chance in a Business team? 

Give us another nudge whenever you have the chance to check this out, cheers!

Hi @Taxaway, could you clarify how you're password-protecting an entire folder? This isn't a feature available with Dropbox, unless you're referring to some other implementation.

Are you referring to shared links with a password on them to access the folder?

Any other info or screenshots would be helpful!
