Support for dropbox free teams ends March 31, 2022

Support for dropbox free teams ends March 31, 2022

ciao, 
oggi ho ricevuto una mail che mi informa che dal 31 marzo non sarà più possibile utilizzare il team di lavoro in modalità free😅
volevo capire se effettivamente dal primo aprile le cartelle e file resteranno invariati, comprese le impostazioni di condivisione o se verranno eliminati agli altri membri del team, ma resterà cmq a me che sono l'amministratore?
non vorrei rischiare di perdere tutto ...
chiedo in modo da poterci preparare per tempo e nel modo giusto al passaggio 😉
grazie a chi mi saprà rispondere e Buona giornata
Sveva

Hello 
today I received an email informing me that from March 31 it will no longer be possible to use the work team in free😅 mode
I wanted to understand if actually from the first of April the folders and files will remain unchanged, including the sharing settings or if they will be deleted to the other members of the team, but will remain cmq to me who am the administrator?
I wouldn't risk losing everything 😓... I ask so that we can prepare in time and in the right way for the passage 
thanks to those who will be able to answer me and Have a nice day
Sveva

Hey @Sveva, thanks for posting your questions to our Community.

With the deprecation of free teams, the only things that are changing are:

1) Account pairing (if you have your free team account linked to a personal one, they will get unlinked)
2) You will no longer be able to access team features, like groups.

Everything else in your account, along with your files and sharing permissions will remain the same.

For more info, you can take a look at the email you received about this.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Hello everyone!

So Dropbox Paper files remain unaltered? Or do they undergo some kind of change in permissions etc etc?

 

Thank you so much for your responses, as my team and I use Dropbox Paper to take track of various aspects of our work

Hey @Davide_C, thanks for posting your question on our Community!

After the deprecation of free teams, you should still be able to access your Paper docs with no issues. 

You can check this Help Center article for more details on what will happen exactly.

Give me a nudge though, if you need something else.

Hannah - perhaps you can help me too.  Since the disbanding of teams (which I was never aware of anyway) my personal DropBox folders have physically disappeared from my laptop.  I can still see them via DropBox.com if I log in, but they are no longer on my computer.  How do I get them back.  

 

All my business DropBox folders and files are still visible on my computer and syncing with other users of the same folders.

Hi @jbj1963, when the personal and work account unlinked, the first account connected on your device remains there, meaning the work account. 

 

As you work account is now also a personal account, you can't have two personal accounts syncing on the machine at the same time. 

 

You can unlink your work account from the desktop app and link your personal account if you prefer those files to sync instead.

I can't find my (ex)Team/Work folder. In my computer (physically) I have it but it's content I think it's only what I had in "Selective Sync", the other sub folder are not there. PLEASE, I can't find many many work folders that I urgently need

Can't find my ex-Team folder!! (March 2022)

I do not see it online on dropbox.com and neither physically on my computer.
On my hard drive I only have the (Team) folders I had locally with "Selective Sync".

PLEASE, I need help. I had a LOT of work files there. 

Who's talking
