Is it possible to leave a shared folder & re-join it later? If so, how?

Re: file

Hey @riffel, you should be able to leave a shared folder following the steps outlined here & re-add it back from your Sharing tab, where it should be listed under the “Folders you can add to your Dropbox”, as long as the Owner hasn’t revoked your access.
Hopefully my post answers your question & please let me know how my pointers work for you or if you have any follow-up questions on our discussion here. Thanks!
