Hi everyone! I've been added to a folder as a member, but I myself have a basic Dropbox account. It's not so much a problem for uploading because I tend to care more about downloading the files from this folder, so as long as I can still access up to date files it's not an issue.
Does anyone know if a shared folder will stop updating to include new files uploaded by other members if my own storage limit has been reached? Or does it continuously remain up to date regardless?
I couldn't find a forum on this, but admittedly I'm not too sure what to search 😅 Any help extremely appreciated! Also, I do know I can ask for a shared link instead of being a member since I'm not uploading anything myself – I might do so if need be, but I'd love to avoid having to ask someone again for a link. Plus it's nice to quickly access from my Dropbox home page.

Hi Walter! That makes sense!
But if I don't do that, and continue with it on my own account past the maxed out size, will I still see new files if they're dropped in by other users, or does it stop updating after I reach my personal data limit?
Why won't Dropbox update after you delete folders/files in order to reduce the size limit? I exceeded my free limit, I subsequently deleted extra folders to free up space but it doesn't doesn't appear to be updating to allow me to upload documents. How do I do this?
