Where is the download option?

There is a button for "Add" and a button to "Remove".  

Where is the download option?

Hey there @midoriiro,
 
You will need to add the folder to your Dropbox account before you will be able to download the content. After you have added the folder, you can locate it from your Files page, click the “…” and you will see the option to Download from there.
 
Let me know how it goes - Cheers!

I don't neccessarily want 4GB of data sitting on my dropbox account, especially if i'm at the computer that needs the files on it.  

How do I download the files without having them uselessly transferred to my dropbox first. The files have no purpose on my account, they are footage required for this job and must be imported into a project on this computer.  

What am I missing here?

Hi @midoriiro,

If just want to download particular folder, ask the other user to share link to the folder. Dropbox Link which You can view in wab browser, no directory share with Your Dropbox account.

Hope, this helps.
