I have an issue with some shared folders. Any ideas?

Greetings.

There was a problem with the folder permissions.

User X does not have access to the X1 folder. But, when synchronizing files and folders through the windows client, the folder X1 appears on the user's X computer.

And here is the question.

Is it possible to make the folder X1 to which the user X has no access, was not visible on the user's X computer when synchronizing the windows application?
Thanks for the advice,
BR.

I had the same problem, it occurred when user x had at least read permissions to the parent folder of x1.  What I ended up doing was creating another root  team folder dedicated to x1.  In this way x1 would be hidden to all without permissions in the windows client.  There may be another way, but this is what I did.  Hope this helps.

Hey @Eon1990, welcome to our community! 

What type of subscription do you have, and how long have you had it? 

Could you post a screenshot of the root of your Dropbox while logged in online? If you do, please omit any private information. Also, can you please tell me the exact permissions error that you’re seeing? If it’s in a different language, go ahead show me the original message. 

Thanks in advance!
