Moving shared folders without giving access to those not already granted access

Moving shared folders without giving access to those not already granted access

I work for a law firm and am trying to clean up our firm's dropbox by moving certain folders into other folders. I do not want those that do not already have access to these folders to gain access and do not want to attempt to move them without being sure that the current permissions will remain the same. Has anyone done something like this before?

Hey @Emmag663, thanks for posting in the Dropbox Community!

Are you talking about team folders in a Dropbox Business account or simple shared folders?

Because if it's just simple shared folders, you won't be able to move folders that are shared to other shared folders.

Things are different with 'team' folders. You can have different sharing permissions on subfolders of team folders.

In a Dropbox Business team, if you move a folder that has, for example, 5 members to a folder that the whole team can access, the subfolder will only be accessed by the people that already had access (those 5 people).

Let me know if you have any questions!
