Private folders work just like any other folder on your hard drive. Move, copy, and rename the folders and its contents just like you would any other folder. As long as the folder is in the Dropbox folder, and Dropbox is running, everything in it will be synced online and to your other computers.
Private folders can't be accessed publicly. Everything in these folders is as secure as any other file on your hard drive and accessible via dropbox.com only if you're logged in. Private folders can become shared folders, and you can share files in a private folder using shared links.
Delte mapper og deres indhold er kun tilgængelige for dem, du inviterer. Du kan gøre enhver normal mappe til en delt mappe, eller du kan acceptere en andens invitation til at blive tilmeldt deres delte mappe. Når du deler en mappe, bliver du bedt om at indtaste e-mailadresserne på dem, du vil dele mappen med. Når modtagerne accepterer din invitation, bliver den delte mappe vist i deres Dropbox-konto ligesom i din konto. Eventuelle ændringer af den delte mappe synkroniseres til alle andre, der er tilmeldt mappen. Det er en fantastisk måde at samarbejde om et projekt og/eller dele filer med andre på.
You can prevent other members of your shared folders from adding, editing, or deleting files by setting view-only permissions.
Windows and Mac only
Use the Dropbox badge to see if your file is in a shared folder. Clicking on the Dropbox badge opens a pop-out window where you can see the number of people sharing the file with you.
Click on Shared Folder Settings in the Badge to go to dropbox.com. On dropbox.com, you can view the names of those you share the folder and file with.
Unlike shared folders, linked files and folders are read-only, meaning users can view and download them, but can't change their contents.
Shared links are unique to your account, and while it's highly unlikely that people could ever guess the link, the links themselves are transferable and could be viewed and downloaded by anyone with or without a Dropbox account.
Links til mapper giver mulighed for adgang udefra, ikke kun til mappen og dens indhold, men også til eventuelle undermapper samt filer i disse undermapper.
On dropbox.com, you can easily see which files and folders you've shared a link to in the past: a link icon will appear under the Shared with column.

Some third party apps with Dropbox integration will ask for permission to access your Dropbox account. To grant access, you'll need to log in to your Dropbox account and explicitly click the Authorize button when prompted. You can visit the Apps linked section of your account settings to review the apps you've granted permission to and revoke access at your discretion.
