Unsharing Someone Else's Directory from My Dropbox Directory

Unsharing Someone Else's Directory from My Dropbox Directory

Hi everyone.

 

A colleage shared one of her DropBox folders with me to review.  I am now done with the task, and I would like to remove this folder from my Dropbox directory.  Can I unshare it, or must I ask her to unshare it with me?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dan

Hey there @hartmada; welcome to our Community!

 

You don't need to ask them to remove your from the shared folder as you should be able to leave the folder using these steps.

 

Let me know if you have any more questions, Dan.

I am unable to use your steps to remove "myself" from a shared group and the associated folders.  How do I remove my access without having to contact the admin of the shared group?

Hey @rwhir33, thanks for joining us on this thread. 

 

Are you trying to remove yourself from a shared folder or a Business team? 

 

If you're not sure which subscription you're on, have a look at your Plan tab and let me know what you find.
