Dropbox Limitation on Sharing Folders

Sharing  Parent and Child Folders with Different Collaborators

For example, you might have a folder structure like this:

  • AllData
    • ClientAData
    • ClientBData

Now, you can share ClientAData with Client A and share ClientBData with client B.   But if you do that, you can no longer share the parent folder AllData with another operator or administrator.

If you try to do that, you can an error “You can’t share a folder that contains a shared folder.”

Until the sharing options improve, it is hard to utilize Dropbox as a way to exchange enterprise data.
