How do I rejoin a shared folder?

« Back to Help Center

If you've left a shared folder, you can rejoin it through the Dropbox website.

Rejoin a shared folder

  1. Sign in to the Dropbox website.
  2. Click on Sharing in the sidebar on the left.
  3. Scroll down to the Removed folders section.
  4. Click on the Rejoin link for the folder.

Dropbox will automatically download the shared folder again even if the previous version of it still exists on your computer. If the previous version is in the same location, Dropbox will download the new version of the rejoined shared folder and append "(1)" to the end of the name (so that you don't have two folders with the same name).

If you'd like to change or restore the previous name, you can rename it to whatever you'd like.
