hard drive crash, trying to download back up from drop box.

hard drive crash, trying to download back up from drop box.

Hard drive Crashed and unhappily I have very bad Internet connection, so it's taking too long to download the very heavy and large folder with all my photos in them onto a new hard drive.   I have a computer guru, with extremely fast Internet,  so I shared by link  the folder but apparently he cannot have access to all the files,  he's asking to have my administration login information,  is there another way that I can share this main folder which has  129  folders with different images in them,   so he can have access to all the image files. so he can use his internet to down load all the folders.  it is onerous for me to send each folder separately by link and also takes a long time...HELP!!!!

this is what my tec man says ( ya but this way will not work as i told you before cuz i cant download them all in one shot... i need to do manaually... the only way to help you in this issue is to bring your computer.. start download all files, then leave your computer locked with password.. or log in with your dropbox uyser name password. then i download instanatly all of them)

The only work around on this is to create one master shared folder and move all of the subfolders in to that one and share the master one.
