Remove a shared folder from your Dropbox

There are two ways to remove a shared folder from your Dropbox account:

  • Temporarily remove the folder (with the option to add it back later)
  • Permanently remove the folder

Temporarily remove a folder (with the option to add it back later)

  1. Sign in to dropbox.com.
  2. Click Files.
  3. Click Sharing.
  4. Under the Folders tab, scroll to the Folders in your Dropbox section.
  5. Click (ellipsis) next to the shared folder name.
  6. Click Remove from Dropbox.

Permanently remove a folder

  1. Sign in to dropbox.com.
  2. Click Files.
  3. Click Sharing.
  4. Under the Folders tab, scroll to the Folders in your Dropbox section.
  5. Click (ellipsis) next to the shared folder name.
  6. Click Remove from Dropbox.
  7. Scroll up to the Folders you can add to your Dropbox section.
  8. Click Remove my access.

If you remove a folder accidentally, you will need to ask the owner of the shared folder to invite you again.

What if I'm not seeing the shared folder options window?

If the shared folder options window fails to pop up in your browser, you may be experiencing an issue caused by a third party browser extension or add-on (such as a pop-up or ad blocker).

If this happens, temporarily disable any browser extensions or add-ons that are running. Once you remove a shared folder or update other settings you can re-enable these browser extensions.

If you'd like to continue using the extension, you may be able to create an exception for Dropbox, or whitelist https://www.dropbox.com. However, note that not all extensions support this functionality.
