Can I calculate how many folders and subfolders are in the team?

Explorer | Level 3

Hi I am fairly new to using Dropbox and my organization has tasked me with organization of folders.  Is there a way to find out how many folders and sub-folders have been created org-wide?  A folder list of sorts.  I am not an administrator and our org has the Business Advance version.

Hi there @G_Mcrae
 
Currently, there isn’t a direct way in which you can see how many folders and sub-folders are in your account or in your team. 
 
More information
There is one thing I can think of, although it’s OS-dependent: Since the Dropbox folder is just like any other folder on your computer, if you have a Windows OS and you’ve installed the desktop app, you can navigate to it and right click to find Properties
 
From there, you’ll be able to see how many folders your Dropbox folder contains - but bear in mind that any selectively synced folders will not be calculated. 
Nonetheless, I’d be more than happy to pass your comments along to the dev team for future consideration. 
 
I hope this helped to some extent!

Unfortunately, this did not solve what I was hoping to accomplish.  It looks like I may need to perform this manually with our internal dropbox administrators.
