I tried to create a new Business Folder but am getting an error that I don't have rights.

New member | Level 2

I upgraded to the Business Std Trial and used my personal account email.  All my personal files appeared in the Trial account and I could not log into my personal account.

I changed the business email address. I still can't access my personal account.

I tried a lost password but did not receive the reset email. I am able to access my personal account settings. 

I tried to create a new Business Folder but am getting an error that I do not have rights.

I use a Mac and am able to configure access for the Business account.

I had a share setup on my personal account that does not exist on the business account. 

I need to be able to share the contents of the folder before Monday morning.  

Does anyone know how to do this?

Re: Cannot share a folder

If you used your personal account to set up the business trial then your personal account no longer exists - it is the business one. So, password resets etc. wont work because there is no such account. 

You can alter settings in the Control Panel to allow sharing if you want as a temp measure until you can sort the rest out?
