About to Leave a Team Folder - How Do I Keep my Personal Files?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi there,

I had a personal folder previously on DB and joined a team where I was added to the Team account. I am about to leave this current position but want to make sure that my files don't go missing due to being over the storage limit on my personal account.

How do I assure that once I do leave the Team that I will still have access and will not lose any of my personal files?

If you just leave the team or the team admin just removes you from it, your account (which is really the business's account) will be deleted. Instead, the team admin needs to convert your account back to an individual account.

Thanks for posting your first question @SrStew12

Everything that is in the Team folders or the shared workspace area of your team, will not be transferred to your account when your admin reverts you to personal. 

You can either copy these folders or the team members/admins can share these directories with you (even if you are not a member of the team) after you leave the team. 

Ping us for any other questions. Thanks!
