Question about shared Dropbox folders

Explorer | Level 3

My Dropbox account has a 2TB limit. Within that, I have shared folders with other users, that we use to transfer files back and forth. 

Their account only has a 2GB limit. 

I have a batch of files totaling around 50GB. 

Am I able to upload those files to our shared folder, and they can access them to download?

I do not need them to upload those files back to me, simply to be able to see them and download them.

Hi there @jcline, thanks for checking in with us on the Dropbox Community!

Since shared folders take up space on all members' accounts, although you might be able to see the added content, other users with less available storage won't be able to.

For this reason, since you simply want them to gain visibility and be able to download the content, I'd recommend sending them a shared link to the content. 

You can find more info about shared folders and storage here

Let me know if you have any other questions!
