I created links to folders so assistant could view. Now I want to share and give permission to edit. I removed all links, refreshed Dropbox, and tried to share. It shows my only option is to share link! I checked that the folders didn't contain other shared files or folders and they don't. How can I fix this so I can share with editing rights?
Solved! Go to solution.
If that's the message you're receiving, then the folder is still shared, or contains another shared folder, or is itself within another shared folder. Remember that shared folders cannot be nested. Also, even if you're the only member of the folder, it's still considered shared. You need to actually unshare the folder.
Go into the share settings for whichever folder is shared and click the Unshare folder link. Links to a folder have no impact on sharing, so those don't need to be removed in order to share a folder.
