Problems sharing folders

Problems sharing folders

Hi,

 

sorry, is already solved, I got an Email saying there was a problem with one of the files and I needed to restore the sharing options through a link, now is everything working fine again.

 

I'm trying to share a couple of folders with a family member and I can't find a way to do it because everything I try gives me some sort of error.

 

When I try to create a link it doesn't and the app tells me that I have no rights to create a sharing link to that folder - I'm the owner of it, actually the only one and haven't shared it with anyone else.

 

When I try to change the folder to shared and add a person I get the error that I have reached my invitation limit for today and I should try in 24 hours, but I have sent one single invitation in the last 24 hours and that was to the root folder, which unfortunately was too big (I'm using Dropbox Professional and the other person the free version so he cannot synchronize the root folder completely because it's too big).

 

I've read about clearing the browser cache in other similar threads but I've done it, I've tried from two different PC's and using the browser as well as through windows explorer, nothing helps, I get those errors from the very start and I can't find a way to share the smaller folders now.

 

Any other ideas for a solution?

 

Cheers and thanks in advance
