Shared folder to a personal account

Shared folder to a personal account

Explorer | Level 3

Hi. My client shares a shared folder to me. She has her Dropbox business account. I'm adding files to it and unfortunately, I can no longer add files since I'm out of storage. I believe she has 5 TB of storage which is enough for the files I'm adding. What's the best work around for this so that I can consume her business storage instead of mine. Thanks

Hey there @victress, I hope you're having a good start to your week!

 

Since you're able to add files, you have editing access to the shared folder. In this case, the folder will take space in your account too as you can edit the files.

 

If you just need to upload files into the folder, you can ask them to send you a file request link instead.

 

Also, if you need to be able to see the content of the folder and even download some of the files (but not edit them collaboratively), you can ask them to share a link to the folder too.

 

Let me know if this helps!
