hello, i have been shared a folder by a company with a vast amount of content,

I am only on this project for a short time and dont have enough space either on my account or machine, to sync everything. is there a way via web only to access the shared folders without it forcing me to upgrade everything?

Hi @motwoozle, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

 

As you've noticed, shared folders take up quota on your Dropbox account.

 

To avoid this, you can ask the owner of the folder to create a shared link to the folder so you can access it via the site.

 

If you need any further assistance, please let me know!
