Number of files in a shared drive

Number of files in a shared drive

Good morning I have seen threads on this topic but does not clearly answer my question. One of my clients need their Dropbox Drive cleaned up and in order to work out how to charge for the inventory, clean up, renaming, archiving etc I would like to know how many files are in the parent folder to include all folders and sub folders. I am not looking for size. Where do I find this number? I do not want to sync this folder to my computer. Can Dropbox help from back of house? As a start how do I find how many files in my Business account?

Hey @BMoorer , thanks for posting!

While there's no Dropbox way to calculate the number of files and folders in the Dropbox folder, the Dropbox folder is just like any other folder on your computer, so I guess you can select the files to see how many they are. 

You're more than welcome to post your idea here, though, if you want!

Let me know if you need anything else. Happy Friday!

Thanks Hannah.

 

So it sounds like you are saying if I have 500 folders I need to click on each of these folders to check how many is in each folder?

Hi @BMoorer, currently there isn't a method to see how many files or folders you have on your account via the Dropbox site.

If you wish, you can suggest this change for others to vote on, so the dev team can look into this in future.
