Re: shared folders

shared folders

Hello — just to clarify how shared folder links work —

if I have a shared folder “tools” and I rename it to “old-tools” that does not affect any of the other members that share “tools”

Does it matter if I am the folder owner? (If I not the owner I do have full edit rights to it)

No, you changing a shared folders name will not update it for any current (or even future) members. You'd need to create a whole new share for that but it is important to remember that regardless of what you call it the other people in the share can all rename it and move it (as long as its not into another share) as much as they like without it impacting the share or even you knowing.

thanks for the info -- so if  created a folder call "mark" and share it with you, with edit access, you can then rename it  to "frank" and if  understand  your reply  I can then  move  the folder "mark" to  a parent folder "friends" ( in dropbox tree -- which does not have any shares)?
