Why people can not upload file to my Personal Dropbox Shared Folder?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi I'm currently using Dropbox Plus, I recently shared a 40G folder with another Dropbox Basic User, and let her upload file to this folder. While Dropbox remind her the storage is full and she can't upload file to my Dropbox folder. I'm wondering for the folder I shared, when another user upload file, will it take up her space, or take up both space? (Coz my original thinking was the usage is similar to Google Drive, people upload to my shared folder, and it just take up my storage)

A member of a shared folder must have enough available space in their own account to hold the content of the shared folder. Other members cannot take advantage of your paid upgrade.
