You don't get access to someone else's space. If you've been invited to join a shared folder, you get your own COPY of that folder, so you need to have enough space in your account to hold the entire folder.

 

 

If you only need to view the files, you can ask the owner to send you a shared link. If you need edit access, you need space in your account to hold the entire folder, or ask the owner to share a smaller folder with you.
