Will shared folders be deleted for other members if I downgrade to a smaller plan?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I have a 1 terabyte dropbox account which is being downgraded to a 2GB (I am leaving my current job). There is a folder that has been shared with me which is at least 70 GB. When my account is downgraded will this folder remain accessible on other peoples dropbox accounts?

Hey @rf313, other shared folder participants shouldn’t be affected by your account downgrade in any way, so there's no need to worry about that. 
 
I hope my post clarifies matters & I’m always here if you have any follow-up inquiries. Have a lovely rest of your day until we talk again!

Thanks so much for your help! Will this also be true for folders that I have shared with other people (as opposed to being shared with me)?

Sure @rf313, that why I’m here! 
 
It’s true, all your shared folders will remain on your account intact. 
 
Have a wonderful weekend ahead!
