Where can I see a list of my shared folders?

Where can I see a list of my shared folders?

Steve W.28
Helpful | Level 6

 It used to be that I could see my list of shared folders on the main page when signing in to Dropbox.  I needed that to track what I have shared and to unshare when a project is complete. I can no longer find that list. All I see is a list of shared files that I can add to Dropbox. They are all very old. I don't know what that means. Where is the list of current shared folders?  Thanks!

It no longer exists. You'll need to locate each share in your main list of folders and manage them from there.

Thank you Rich. What a time waster that is.

Agreed! It is just another in a growing list of features that have been removed by Dropbox.

Why was this removed from Dropbox?  I needed this feature to determine what my shared folders were and clean them up now and then.  I often share things with people I don't want to be permanent.  This seriously makes me reconsider Dropbox as my go-to file sharing service.  In fact, I've paid for it for years.  This is simply not OK and you may lose a paying customer over it.

We agree Sam.

We really do.

Have a look over at https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Sharing-and-collaboration/Locate-Shared-Folder/m-p/268440/highlight/... and post your thoughts there as well.

Thanks. I had the same problem. Clearly an attempt by Dropbox to have the free storage used up. Will therefore limit my use o Dropbox

Glad many agree. Doesn't look like there are any reply buttons on that thread. This is utter tosh in the name of simplification. This is a massive security and privacy problem having to peck through folder after folder to check, rather than present to me who I've allowed access to my files. Looking for alternatives now.

I am going to investigate other options.

Perhaps my post in another thread is a workaround for some of you?
