Configure shared access to a folder
Access to a folder
Do other people's folders take up space on my Yandex.Disk?
No, a shared folder takes up space only on its owner's Disk. Once you accept the invitation, the service copies the folder to your Disk, but space occupied by the folder isn't counted. This means you can accept an invitation to access a folder of any size, regardless of the space available on your Disk.
If you run out of space on your Disk, you won't be able to upload files to a shared folder, even if you are not the owner of this folder. If you want to be able to upload files to a shared folder, make sure you have some free space on your Disk.
How to quickly access a shared folder?
You can see the list of folders that you have granted or gained access to on the Shared folders page. Each shared folder is marked with the icon.

Comments to shared folders
Users with access to a shared folder can leave comments to its files and folders, reply to comments and add Likes or Dislikes. All authorized users can comment, regardless of their access rights.
You can't edit a published comment, but you can delete it and write a new one.
The owner of a shared folder can delete comments from all authorized users and disable comments to a file or folder. You can't simultaneously turn off comments for all files in a public folder.
- You will see a pop-up notification in the upper right corner of the screen.
- The information about the comment is displayed in the notification list.
- If you have Yandex.Disk installed, you will see a message in the lower right corner of the screen.
To view all notifications, click the icon to the left of the account portrait.
To view the history of comments as well as Likes and Dislikes, click the All events button on the History page and choose the line.
Yandex.Disk is out of storage space
If you run out of space on Yandex.Disk, you can't upload new files, share files, or create shared folders. Additionally, you can't use public links to download files you shared earlier, but you can save them to Yandex.Disk. Other actions with files are not blocked. You can still view files, download them to your computer, edit, move, or delete.
