Who is my folder shared with?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I want to share a folder, but it says I can only share a link because the folder contains a shared folder.  Everything should be for me only.  I cannot find a folder or a file that is shared.  How can I find what is shared and who it is shared with?

Navigate to the folder on the website and then look through it for a different icon. It will say next to it that its shared. It is possible its 'shared' but only with you. 

 

Once you find it you can then remove that share via https://help.dropbox.com/files-folders/share/leave-shared-folder

I have so many subfolders and files that the shared ones were hard to find.  But looking for the different icon made things much faster.  Thanks.
