complete folder and files map

Our folder structure has grown organically and we have 30 users across multiple shared folder - but not under a common centralised team structure.  I was hoping there would be a smart way of doing an inventory (visual or table map or log) of how all our files are held, owned, shared.  From what I can see this isn't possible?
So as a plan B, what would be the best way to systematically log our current use, or migrate all our disparate folders and files into a team shared environment without causing chaos?

Any suggestions welcome!

Hi @lowcarbon, thanks for messaging the Community!

As you're aware, currently it isn't possible to create a visual folder/file structure view of your Dropbox accounts, or of other users on the same Business plan.

Regarding this matter, there isn't a simple way to log the current usage of users, beyond the activity log in the admin console.

While it is a little outdated, since there is the option to restrict access to folders now, my old thread about team structures might help in a way to make your team structure with groups and teams folders. When you do decide to move all the files across to the new structure, it's best to do it when no one, (or at least, the minimum possible) number of people access the account to prevent duplication or data loss.

If you need any more details, feel free to message back!
