Hey there (@Twiliath), assuming that your account is completely empty, I’m wondering whether the share you’re trying to add puts you above your storage allowance. If so, then it would be worth noting that this wouldn’t let you complete the action in the first place.
If you’d like to collaborate on a shared folder that's larger than your allotted quota, I'd recommend checking out these simple steps to get some extra space on your account.
Alternatively, you can still ask the owner to send you a read-only shared link 🔗, which will let you view the contents in your folder & you won’t even need a Dropbox account to access it.
I hope that my pointers are- even slightly- helpful to you, though I’m also here should you have any additional inquiries; just let me know of any follow-up questions you may have here & I’ll make sure to check back asap. Thanks!
