I have a folder someone shared with me, but when I hit "Save to Dropbox" it saves a snapshot of the folder.  If the original owner adds something to it I don't see those changes.  How can I save a link to the original instead of the snapshot?

Hey @twistedblood, welcome to our Community and thanks for using Dropbox!

Can you both see the same files in the folder when you navigate to this folder on the website?

Also, is there a particular reason you're not sharing the folder directly with your collaborator and you're using shared links instead?

Let me know what you find!
