What are "not added" shared files and folders?

Helpful | Level 5

Under Internet > Dropbox > Left menu > Shared, some of the files or folders are listed with the notation "not added". These have all been missing from my local Dropbox folder for a couple of years. Can anyone explain this situation in detail, including how to recover the files or folders?

They are shared folders that you removed from your Dropbox without removing your access. Such folders can be added back to your Dropbox from your Share page.

Thank you! For anyone else who has my problem: on the Share page, each entry has a very faint gray "Add" button that appears only when you put the mouse on top of the entry. The "Add" button is to the left of the ". . ." button instead of being in the menu that appears when you click the ". . ." button.
