Remove a shared folder without permantently removing access?

Level 2

How can I remove a folder from my Dropbox that has been shared with me (I am not the owner), without permanently removing my access to it? I might want to add it back to my Dropbox later on.

Hey there @parrotjungle,
 
To remove a shared folder from your account temporarily you can simply delete the shared folder from your account. Please note, you shouldn’t delete the content of the folder as this would reflect for all other members, just delete the folder itself.
 
You’ll then be able to add it back at any time (providing you have space in your account) from your Sharing tab here.
 
Let me know if you have any other questions - Cheers!
