I have removed all the links in the dropbox folders and it says only me that has access, but it still won't allow me to share a file, it says I can only use a link as it has a shared file within it . . .how can I reset it so it can show I have removed all those shared files. .

Hi @browningk, thanks for posting on the Community!

It sounds like you haven't unshared the folders in the folder itself. Although it says you are the only member, the folder still needs to be unshared.

You can see which folders are still unshared by the icon on the folder, if it has a two-person icon on it, then it's still officially shared.

You can follow these steps to unshare folders.

Keep me updated with any progress!
