Re: folders

Hey @GulfSolution, welcome to our community! 

Let me give this a shot: 
 
  • Team folders are only available to Dropbox Business teams, and Dropbox free teams. Content in team folders automatically syncs to all members who are in the group that’s part of the folder. More info here.

  • Shared folders are available to all Dropbox account types. With shared folders you can invite others to share the contents of the folder, and decide whether they can edit the contents or just view them. Have a look here for more info.

  • Regular folders are available to all Dropbox account types. These folders are for you to organize your Dropbox content, and are only visible to you, unless you choose to share them. 

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further questions. 
Cheers!
