Mac padlock on old Business Team Folder / Can't create new folders

Explorer | Level 3

Hi recently downgraded from Business to Plus, keeping my Team Folder with all my client files intact. Now I see a padlock through Mac Finder on all my client folders and files in that Team Folder and cannot create new folders within those client folders. I am the admin of the account. On dropbox.com that Team Folder shows me and one other person as 'members'. Why is Dropbox not considering me the original creator of that Team Folder and allowing me to continue editing? What's the issue and solution? Checked around on cloud version and nothing I can do from a sharing perspective as I already am part of the group accessing the Team Folder (as a member of course).

Hey there @hzambran

Could you please clarify for me if you're able to see the sharing permissions of the folder in question that you and the other member have?

Additionally, could you please let me know if you see a padlock icon on the folder when you navigate to it through the website?

Thanks in advance!

Did you get my response? Yes I can see the shared folder details. 

The padlock is on both the desktop and cloud. had written much more but didn't save so I'm being terse now.

what i ultimately did was delete the team. that converted the folder to a shared folder but it also flattened it which will require work. The sub folders are generally there but if anyone within the team folder had shared something with me or I had with them, it is now a shared folder and has to be organized again. there really needs to be clearer documentation on this.
