Invitation to Dropbox too old

Invitation to Dropbox too old

Long time ago (2011) I invited my brother to Dropbox, but now that he tries to activate the link, the link does not work - what to do?
Thank you in advance!

Hey @hekeha, just to clarify, sharing a folder doesn't really count as a referral.

 

If your brother created an account without using the referral invitation, there's really not much we can do.

 

If you follow the steps to send a referral on dropbox.com and choose the "copy link" option instead, can your brother sign up through there?

Hey @hekeha, thanks for posting to our Community.

 

Can you please let me know what you were trying to do with this inivitation?

 

Was this a referral, so you can gain extra space? Or perhaps an invitation to a shared folder?

 

Let me know and we'll go from there.

This was a referral but also intended to share a folder.
Thanks, Hannah!

Have you recently tried to send him a referral through your Referrals page? If you only sent him an invitation to join a shared folder, that doesn't count towards a referral.

Yes, I tried to resend the invitation yesterday.

But I am being told automatically, that he has already been invited.
Can this invitation be deleted or made active?
