Here's my issue. Some time ago I created 12 directories for my organization. I set up different accesses for each directory. In other words some have access to all 12 while others have access to only some of the 12. I would like to create a directory above these 12, a kind of umbrella directory. I would give all members access to that higher level directory but I don't want that access to extend to all of the 12 below it. I want to keep those accesses as they are. I'm under the impression that full access to the highest level gives you full access to everything below it. I don't want that to be the case. I want some of the members to see only some of the 12 below the highest directory. Hope that makes sense. HELP!!!
Your assumption is right. If you give everybody access to the new 'parent' folder they would automatically get access to all of the 12 folders underneath.
In fact what you may actually find is you cannot set up the parent folder share OR move the folders in to the new parent folder because the 12 are already shared - Dropbox would almost certainly give you an error that shares cannot be inside of shares.

Thanks for confirming for me what I suspected. Is there any way some sort of consolidation can occur? Could the member who has Dropbox on his own PC somehow amalgamate the folders he has access to under a single directory he creates in Dropbox on his own computer.
Some memberes are saying that the names of some of my directories conflict with similar names of other directories they have access to from other sources. If they could somehow move mine under a directory they create on their own computer, that would take care of it.
