Removing shared folder contents from members' hard drives
When you remove members, you'll be given the option to let them keep a copy of the shared folder and its files. If you choose not to, the files will be removed from the members' online accounts immediately and from their linked computers the next time they sync using the Dropbox desktop application. In this case the files will be permanently deleted from those accounts, meaning they can't be recovered even by restoring files.
If you allow removed members to keep a copy of the shared folder, you might want to avoid confusion by letting them know that their copy will no longer sync with other accounts.
Remove a member from your desktop
On some computers you can remove members from shared folders from the Dropbox desktop app. If you haven't already, download the desktop app.
Click the dropdown menu below, and select the computer operating system that you’d like to see instructions for.
