Shared folder data

Shared folder data

Moona
New member | Level 2

Hi,
I have had a business account through my employer. Now when I switched locations, I had to make my own business account. If I share all my folders from my old account with my new account, what happens to the data when the old account is canceled/stops working? I have 10Tbs of data so I can't start transferring the data "manually".

Thank you for your help!

You need to make sure its shared and transferred to the new account before the old account is removed - otherwise there is a chance the closing of the old account will remove it for you. 

 

Note that you should be able to just send it as a shared folder from old to new accounts and then leave the share at the new account. You wont need to do anything else with that, but, you may need to consider how you set this back up on your computer.
