deleting certain folders in shared link on my end only

deleting certain folders in shared link on my end only

I have a link that was shared with me taking up 17 Gb. I'm on the basic 2 gb. plan so I can't upload anything because of the link. Is there a way to delete the folders I don't need access to on my end only, and not for everyone else?

Hey @Pirtelio, thanks for joining the Community and happy Friday!

Files and folders that are shared through shared links don't take up space towards your account's quota normally. 

If you've selected to add them to your account when accessing the shared link in question, you're safe to delete them without impacting the original files as they're practically considered your own copy of the files. 

Let me know if you have any questions!
