Remove My Access From Shared Folder; Keep Copy

New member | Level 2

Hi, I recently removed my access from a shared folder, and I decided to "Keep a copy of the folder". My question is, will other members of that shared folder can still access/view the files inside? Kinda confused.

Thank you.

Hey there @noorsyafiqm - how are you today?

If you've removed your access from a shared folder and you chose to keep a copy of the folder, the other members will keep their access to the original shared folder and the files within it - not your copy of the folder in any way. 

If I've misunderstood anything please let me know!
