IHaveshared a folder with the included files to a friend. Now, she wants to edit the files and save the file on her own computer. We can´t manage it. Anyone know how?

Hey there @rusven,

To allow others edit access to a folder, you'll need to share the folder by adding their email address to the folder with the steps outlined here. They will need to have a Dropbox account under the email address that you share with so that they can accept the folder without issue. This will allow you to both edit the files and see the edits that the other makes and they will be able to download the folder with these steps or by using the desktop app.

If they would just like to download the files and make their own edits to the files, then you can share the folder with a link. They won't need a Dropbox account to view the content, and once they open the link they'll see an option to download the content to their computer in the top right of the web page.

Let me know how it goes - thanks!
