Our team just switched over to dropbox and I just came back from a few days off so I downloaded the dropbox client and made a new work account to use. I used a link my boss provided to access a shared folder and I saw the option to 'add to dropbox' thinking this meant I can have this accessible via the desktop client. it started to sync however since I was not part of the dropbox business team yet it stopped at 2gb. I requested to be part of the business team but when I refreshed my browser, i was told that the page i was just on doesn't exist.
when I try to use the link again I am met with the same error. I am afraid that I somehow took all of the files off of the shared folder? Is that even possible? Why would this even be a feature? When I look at my desktop client, the files only have me as a member. Apparently there also is an error with me being added to my team saying to "try again later". Did I do something terribly wrong when I pressed "add to dropbox"?
Thank you for clarifying the issue. You are correct, I guess i just starting downloading all the files onto my own dropbox folder but once my teammates were able to add me (needing to use a different browser it sounds like) I was able to get access to everything else.
I was really worried that i had somehow moved files away from the teams folder but that wasn't the case. Sorry for freaking out but thankful for your help!
