Remove Shared Access

Remove Shared Access

New member | Level 2

I am not seeing the "Remove Access" option on a folder that was shared with me.  That folder has caused me to exceed my limit, and I don't want it shared with me anymore.

Hi @MikeBalk; thanks for posting on our Community!

 

Can you please confirm that you're following these steps?

 

In case you do, please send me a screenshot of the last screen you get in order to advise further.

 

Thanks!

Yes, I followed those directions.  That is how I realized that the "Remove My Access" option was not there.

I went with the "Temporarily Remove a Folder" option and clicked on Delete.  That did remove it from my access, but also deleted the files from everyone else.

 

When I select a folder, and click the down arrow next to Share I get "Share with Dropbox" or "Connect Apps"dropbox.png options.

 

I appreciate any feedback.  Thanks.

Hi @MikeBalk, it looks like you might be inside a shared folder itself, since all the folders on that page have 9 members, but no shared folder icon on any of them, .

 

If this is the case, then you can't 'remove your access' to it, as it was added to the folder. Deleting the folder would be just like deleting a file in a shared folder, so it deletes for everyone.

 

Hope this helps to clarify matters!
