I can't move an image BACK to a folder that it came from

Level 3

I am selecting images to use for a website update. after moving some images to a shared folder for the website designer, there is one I wanted to take out and move back. 

When I select "move", dropbox "suggests" 2 places to move it, neither of which is the one I want. I do not see an option to SELECT the folder I want.

Hey there Kathy, how are you today?

If I understood correctly, you're trying to move some files though our website and you're getting prompted with suggested locations - correct me if I'm wrong please.

There should be an option to click on other folders as well, or go back to your top folders. Could you double check if you're getting any of those options?

Or else, could you try this on another browser or after clearing your browser's cache?

Let me know of any updates!
